The chapters in this book are derived from commissioned papers and those presented at an ISEAS Workshop entitled “The Political Economy of Malaysia: Current Trends and Future Challenges” held in September 2004. Chapters 1, 2, 10, and 12 are specially commissioned from ISEAS scholars who are experts in their own field of interest. The other eight chapters are extensively revised versions of the papers presented at the Workshop. Both the Workshop and this book are the products of the Institute's Malaysia Study Programme.
We would like to thank Professor Wang Gungwu, Chairman of the ISEAS Board of Trustees, for contributing the Foreword, ISEAS scholars for preparing the commissioned essays, and the Workshop speakers for revising their papers for publication.
