Dances with Garuda: Malaysia-Indonesia Bilateral Relations

By Ahmad Nizar Yaakub

Kota Samarahan, Malaysia: Universiti Malaysia, Sarawak, 2013. Paperback. New.

Kataks', Kadazan-Dusun Nationalism and Development: The 1999 Sabah State Election.

By Ung Ho Chin

Australia: The Australian National University, 1999. Paperback. As New. This is an interesting study of what might normally be expected to be a bit of a sideshow to the main Malaysian political scene. However the 1999 Sabah state elections came amidst a period of turmoil when Malaysia's then strongman, Mahathir, had sacked his deputy, Anwar Ibrahim, leading to widespread demonstrations against the regime. So these state elections were seen as a litmus test of the popularity of the Barisan Nasional, the ruling party, who had also a shaky hold on power in the state due to defections from the previous state governing party, the Sabah Unity Party. 84 pages, Weight 0.4kg.

By Johan Sarvanamuttu

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia: SIRD, 2016. Paperback. New. Saravanamuttu, with other collaborators, has already had published several books on individual Malaysian general elections. Here he launches into an all encompassing review of the six decades of elections since independence, focussing particularly on what he calls 'mediated communalism,' i.e. he recognises that Malaysian politics is essentially communal, but that it is softened through a balancing act within the Barisan Nasional (BN), the country's ruling coalition. While analysing its operation, he also notes how it is altering, particularly since the 'landmark' 2008 election when BN lost its two-thirds majority for the first time. 322 pages with a bibliography, index and tables.

Winning Strategies of Anwar Ibrahim

By Mutharasan

Kuala Lumpur: Focus Media, 2008. Paperback. Very Good. The author claims his book to be an 'objective analysis' of the manner in which the then opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, succeeded in enabling his Pakatan Rakyat coalition to deprive the ruling Barisan Nasional of its two-thirds majority in the 12th General Elections. His viewpoint is interesting since, up to the time of writing, Mathurasan had spent his entire political life as an activist for Barisan Nasional, as a member of one of its constituent members, the Malaysian Indian Congress. 231 pages. Weight 0.5kg. Post free within Malaysia Apart from a little bit of cover wear, the book looks new.
