Ming Court Crisis

by Alli Kawi

Condition: New

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia: Golden Books Centre, 2010. First edition. Paperback. New. Political intrigue is the lifeblood of politicians everywhere. This book is not, as the title might suggest, about maneuverings between courtiers in China long ago, but rather the inside story of an attempt to topple the chief minister of Sarawak, Abdul Taib Mahmud, in 1987. (Ming Court was the name of the hotel where the skullduggery took place.) The author, a retired policeman and active politician at the time, was at the centre of the plot and gives a blow by blow account of what he says happened. 142 pages. Weight 0.4kg.
