A riveting look into Malaysia's most famous prime minister and his often controversial views and policies. A penetrating insight into the mind of Malaysia's most famous and controversial prime minister. Undiluted and candid views on many issues and topics - Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore, Israel and its allies, the Jews and the Malays, and Dr Mahathir's prescription for handling the Malay terrorist challenge. Author is an award-winning American journalist and distinguished scholar of Asian and Pacific Studies. He began his professional career as a family physician but wound up prescribing innovative political medicines for the entire nation that remain controversial even today. Was he exactly the bold and fearless policy doctor that the troubled body politic of Malaysia needed? Or was he just another mendacious mediocrity with a record of persistent misdiagnoses, phony remedies and self-serving justifications? Only history's judgment can offer the final verdict but Dr Mahathir himself is in no doubt. In a riveting series of unprecedented conversations, Malaysia's most famous former prime minister reveals to American journalist and author Tom Plate a panoramic panoply of views on governing, on Islam, on Jews, on the West and on Malays that are striking in historical sweep and contemporary relevance. Tom Plate, author of Confessions of an American Media Man(2007) and Conversations with Lee Kuan Yew(2010) is an experienced writer, journalist and syndicated columnist. He is director of the Pacific Perspectives Media Center in Beverley Hills, a non-profit organisation that syndicates high-end op-eds and was recently appointed Distinguished Scholar of Asian and Pacific Studies at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles
