Analyses discourses pertinent to democratic politics in Malaysia, including the political elite's interpretation of 'Asian values' and 'Asian democracy', contending Islamic views on democracy, the impact of developmentalism on political culture, and the recovery of women's voice in everyday politics.


'Foreigners' understanding of Malaysian politics has been much assisted by the frequent and thought provoking publications by those Malaysian scholars who are often critical. Democracy in Malaysia: Discourses and Practices is a valuable example of that literature.' - Asian Affairs
