From jacket flap:
Dr Mahathir Mohamad represents a new generation of self-made and self-confident Malaysians. Once labeled an ‘ultra’ and expelled from UMNO, Dr Mahathir emerged from the political wilderness to become the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia.
The setbacks and moments of glory are narrated in this book. More importantly, the text also gives insight to Mahathir’s background and philosophy as well as his reactions to the pressing problems of the day, especially those which beset bumiputras in particular and Malaysians in general. It seeks to discover the mind of this forthright and open minded man as he engages in international relations.
It is a profile in courage.
