Description - Democracy in Malaysia by Khoo Boo Teik
The latest volume in the Democracy in Asia series provides a further significant contribution to the international discourse on democracy. The first part of this thought provoking volume contains discussions of various discourses pertinent to democratic politics in Malaysia. These include the political elite's interpretation of 'Asian values' and 'Asian democracy', contending Islamic views on democracy, the impact of developmentalism on political culture, media definition of the boundaries of political debate, and the recovery of women's voices in everyday politics. The second part focuses on specific areas and issues of democratic practices, namely the limits to democratic administration, problems of judicial independence, the changing character of elections and political parties, non-governmental organisations' participation in politics, the position of labour and trade unions, and the implications of the concentration of ownership and control over mass media.
