A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE | The Memoirs of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
Hari ni saya sempat menyaksikan pelancaran buku yang sekian lama dinanti-nantikan oleh ramai pihak. Buku yang ditulis oleh mantan perdana menteri malaysia, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang diberi judul “A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE: The Memoirs of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Ia telah dilancarkan dan dijual diseluruh cawangan MPH dan kedai-kedai buku seluruh negara pada hari ini 8 Mac 2011. Buku dijual dengan harga RM100.00 senaskhah.
Sedikit extract dari buku tersebut:
In his twenty-two years as Prime Minister of Malaysia Dr Mahathir Mohamad transformed his country from an agricultural backwater into an industrial powerhouse that would become the seventeenth-largest trading nation in the world.
This remarkable achievement was not without controversy, and Dr Mahathir’s extraordinary vision and iron grip earned him both enemies as well as ardent admires within and outside Malaysia. He has been described -typically and paradoxically-as a tyrannical dictator, a bete noir, as well as an inspiring, courageous and outspoken defender of the downtrodden, the Third World, and moderate Islam.
At almost every turn Dr Mahathir rewrote the rules. This book reveals hitherto unknown aspects of this intensely private, but publicly bold, statesman. It provides a clear and compelling narrative of modern Malaysia political history as seen through the eyes of one of its greatest shapers. It is neither an apology nor a defence, but a forceful, compelling and often exciting account of how Dr Mahathir achieved what he did in so short time, and why.
