ASEASUK News, No. 52, Autumn 2012

"This book is a must-read for anyone interested in a variety of topics: Malaysia, multiculturalism and pluralism, Islam and modern society and so forth.  Hoffstaedter is fearless in his assessment, which paints a none-too-rosy picture of the Malaysian state and elites.  But his tone is never hysterical, rather it is reasoned, logical and powerful in its argumentation.
