Kuala Lumpur; New York 1994 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket Small sticker front endpaper.; 16 x 26 cm.; pg. xxii, 317; South-East Asia Social Science Monographs. Preface, ... tables, figures, notes on contributors, bibliography, index. "From colonial times until the end of the 1970s the main driving force of the Peninsular Malaysia economy was the export production of primary products--first tin, then also rubber, and later, palm oil and timber, and finally petroleum. It was only in the 1980s that export-oriented industrial production took over as the leading sector, enabling Malaysia to become one of the world's most outstanding economic performers. The contributors to this volume seek to show not only how a small country with quite modest resource endowment has used a strong political will to mobilize these resources, their product and its own people to achieve a remarkable transformation, but also to show how the lives of ordinary people have been transformed in the process.
