Description As the master strategist of modern Malaysia's phenomenal growth and development over the last quarter of the 20th century, Dr Mahathir Mohamad seems to thrive on unfashionable ideas, controversial policies and a contentious style of diplomacy: an enigma baffling to both his detractors and supporters alike. Hajrudin Somun looks at the secret behind Malaysia's success as a model of economic development and Mahathir's role as an initiator of change. It is irrefutably evident that his policy of economic and social development was no miracle, but the product of his vision and economic planning. There are several important lessons that developing and less-developed countries could learn from Mahathir's brand of economic management: nurturing unity in a multicultural society, breaking off from a rigid approach to the past, formulating sound economic policies, etc. The author illustrates these elements analytically, making simple the most complex of issues. The author, Hajrudin Somun is Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Malaysia.
