Synopsis: MALAYSIAN MAVERICK: MAHATHIR MOHAMAD IN TURBULENT TIMES

The grandson of an Indian immigrant and the first commoner to become prime minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad turned the Muslim-majority Southeast Asian country into one of the developing world's most successful economies. During his 22 years in power, he adopted pragmatic economic policies alongside repressive political measures, and showed that Islam was compatible with representative government and modernization. Abrasive and outspoken, Mahathir emerged as a Third World champion and Islamic spokesman by condemning the West, not least for trying to impose liberal democracy and neo-liberal economics on developing nations. By raising living standards and winning international acclaim, he contributed to a sense of national identity, pride and confidence among ethnically diverse Malaysians. But success came at a steep price. Authoritarian and impatient, Mahathir jailed opponents, sacked rivals and undermined institutions as he pursued his obsession with development. In mixing business and politics, he encouraged cronyism and failed to prevent the spread of corruption.
