THE FIRST IN-DEPTH EXPOSE OF RACISM & RACIAL DISCRIMINATION IN MALAYSIA

At last! The elephant in the room is not only acknowledged but caringly examined from trunk to tail by Malaysian social scientist Kua Kia Soong. This is the first in-depth expose of racism & racial discrimination in Malaysia, written from a historical and class perspective. It focuses the nation to confront once and for all the ʻBumiputera agendaʼ which has been implemented with impunity since the New Economic Policy in 1971. These discriminatory policies fail to meet the standards of international conventions and continue to stymie Malaysiaʼs goal of achieving high-income status by 2020.

This book is about the politics of race and class in Malaysia, highlighting the structural conditions that enable the crude manipulation of race to serve the economic interests of the ruling elite. The chapters on the Emergency contain declassified documents from the British Public Records Office, which were made available after the 30-year secrecy rule was lifted. The author offers alternatives that are needs based and thus race-free by doing away with such discriminatory policies, rent-seeking activities and patronage politics.

ʻHis copious references with detailed annotations are the first of its kind on this subject which is often considered sensitive by the beneficiaries of such policies… The author must be congratulated for his dedicated research, analysis, and conclusions.ʼ
