An authoritative study of the Malaysian economy and labour market. Malaysia has enjoyed an enviable growth record over twenty-five years which few nations can match, and has also been keen to judge her performance against non-growth criteria of poverty eradication and national unity following the emergence of racial conflict in 1969. There are many lessons for policy-makers elsewhere of this active approach to poverty eradication and social restructuring while generating rapid growth, which stands in sharp contrast to laissez-faire orthodoxy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The book presents...for the first time a complete picture of the interaction of macroeconomic change, economic structure, income distribution, human resource development and employment....Lucas and Verry have produced a very broad, yet detailed study of the changes which the labour market is undergoing along Malaysia's road towards bedoming an industrialised country. It offers fascinating insights into the interrelationships of developement and poses questions which have a more general relevance even outside South East Asia.' - Gus Edgren, Director ILO-SAAT

'This is a most impressive study of Malaysia's experience. Lucas and Verry have brought their endeavours on behalf of the Malaysian Government to a much wider audience.' - Peter Maunder, The Times Higher Education Supplement
