About This Book

The Malay Dilemma was first published in 1970 to much controversy, but remains essential reading for all. Written by Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, this book caused him to be called upon to defend his statements and claims. This is not an objective book. Nevertheless, it is published because this is what an "educated, modern, progressive" Malay thinks and believes. In the past, Malays tended to shield friends and enemies from embarrassment, and in consequence often concealed their true thoughts. The arguments in The Malay Dilemma reveal the author's reactions to the pressing problems of the day, and show how a politically inclined Malay understands the past, explains the behaviour of his own people and the behaviour of immigrants, and foresees the future. Dr Mahathir also examines and analyses the makeup of the Malays - their heredity, their way of life, their religion - and argues their case with stark frankness. This 2008 edition contains a new preface by the author.
