Abstract

[Extract] This fascinating work explores Mahathir's years in power as Malaysia's third prime minister, and describes the resulting polarization of state structures, fragmentation of the social polity, and generation of a potentially viable opposition bloc in Malaysia. Malaysia; Mahathirism, hegemony and the new opposition is Hilley's first book, based on his doctoral thesis. Composed in a framework which is both theoretical and contemplative, the book is organized into nine chapters, each with its own specific and interrelated agenda. There is also a helpful index of subjects and a list of abbreviations.
