THE POLITICS OF BANGSA MALAYSIA: NATION-BUILDING IN A MULTIETHNIC SOCIETY

Mohamed Mustafa Ishak

ISBN 978-967-0474-34-2

Pages: 302

Year : 2014

The politics of nation-building has always been a central issue in Malaysia. Whilst the country has been able to sustain a relatively stable politics since the 1969 tragedy, and hence generate a rapid economic development (at least until the 1997 Asian economic crisis and later in the post 2008 General Election), the project of nation-building remains a basic national agenda yet to be fully resolved. The book explores the delicate process of nation-building in Malaysia in the post 1970s, especially in the context of the vision constructing the Bangsa Malaysia or ‘a united Malaysian nation’ enshrined in Mahathir’s Vision 2020 project which was introduced in 1991. It discusses the underlying socio-political parameters that shape and influence the politics of nation-building in the country and the construction of Bangsa Malaysia. As such, the book provides an alternative perspective in the analysis of ethnic relations and nation-building in Malaysia, thus broadens the understanding of Malaysian politics and society.

“I am sure the book with its academic inputs and extensive research will provide readers a better insight and understanding of what the Bangsa Malaysia is all about, its concept and its objectives… We can hope, dream and even pray for it.…”

-       Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad   -
