About This Book

2010 English edition of the thoughtful 2009 Malay account of the life and ideas of Zaid Ibrahim (b. 1951), lawyer, former UMNO leader and briefly in 2008, Minister of Law. Part I discusses many aspects of his 23 years' involvement with UMNO and the hegemonistic trends which led to his sacking in December 2008. There are thoughtful insights into ongoing issues. Part II traces his career from its beginnings in a Kelantan kampong and shows how his commitment to Islam, the law and to human needs has developed. In Part III, many recent issues are explored, including the fate of the judges sacked in 1988, fascism, communism and liberty in the contemporary scene, the future of Malays and interesting comments on Malay and non-Malay leaders in Malaysia. With photographs.
