Malaysian-born M. Bakri Musa, a California surgeon, is a columnist
for Malaysiakini.com and a contributor to Malaysia-Today.net. His
credits have appeared in the Far Eastern Economic Review,
International Herald Tribune, and Education Quarterly. His
commentary has also aired on National Public Radio's Marketplace.
This second volume follows the pattern of the first, Seeing
Malaysia My Way, and carries the writer's commentaries from 2004 to
2007, a look at Malaysia under the leadership of Prime Minister
Abdullah Badawi. It is both reflective and prescriptive.
Malaysia is generously blessed with many favorable attributes.
Properly harnessed they would propel Malaysians to be among the
developed and prosperous. Instead, the nation is today mired in
endless crises, its leadership hopelessly distracted, and citizens
dangerously polarized. Malaysian institutions, once the envy of the
region, are today irreparably damaged through the twin blights of
corruption and incompetence.
These essays are a critical look at the leadership of Abdullah
Badawi, and his management of these crucial issues facing Malaysia.
The writer does not spare Abdullah's many enablers in his cabinet,
party, academia, and mainstream media and others who still insist
that the country is on the right track.
Bakri Musa offers his prescription on improving education,
tackling corruption, and weaning off the subsidy mentality,
adopting the best practices elsewhere and adapting them to the
specific needs and problems of Malaysia. In highlighting the
achievements of the past, the writer points to the potential the
country is capable of achieving.
