About This Book

Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi - Malaysia's fifth prime minister - is probably the most misunderstood and maligned among Malaysian leaders. He was regarded as an accidental prime minister, yet he led his party to the biggest-ever general election victory in Malaysian history, only to be rejected by voters four years later. Now, Malaysians acknowledge that his relatively short rule was the springtime of Malaysian democracy. His firmness in ensuring a smooth and peaceful handover of power in the five states won by the opposition after the 2008 general election marked him as a courageous and principled leader. His legacy to Malaysia is substantial. In this book, journalist and author Wong Sulong traces the evolving public perception of this humble and remarkable politician.
