MULTIETHNIC MALAYSIA: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE (2009)
Edited by Lim Teck Ghee, Alberto Gomes and Azly Rahman
Published by Strategic Information and Research Development Centre and MiDAS @ UCSI University

The average Malaysian non-fiction section in any bookstore looks like a country club photo album that portrays the post-colonial elite, endorsing the viewpoint of the status quo they help create. There are few books on the market that study the evolution of Malaysia's multiethnic society, let alone address the country's tumultuous past, its uneasy scandal-laden present and its often uncertain and constantly shifting future. Therefore, a book on multiethnic Malaysia, with its no-holds-barred approach to ethnic issues is a much welcome addition.

Multiethnic Malaysia: Past, Present and Future is a compilation of 25 papers written by 20 of the country's most well-known academics, political experts, activists and columnists.
