About This Book

"This book is a collection of vignettes on Malaysia's political, social, and economic scenes as well as its international developments from 2000 to 2002. It pulls no punches, yet its sharp observations are delivered with a light and humorous touch. With more than 30 years of experience in journalism, politics, business and diplomacy, the author is one of the best persons to comment on this turbulent world we live in." The author was a former Member of Parliament (Deputy Minister), a corporate figure and Special Envoy to the United Nations. Detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) from November 1976 to July 1981, he later became Group Editor-in-Chief and Executive Director of The New Straits Times Press (M) Berhad, until he was sacked on November 20, 2003.
