"This book is a must-read for two reasons. First, it documents and analyses the current phase of leadership change, which marks the closure of the Mahathir era, and the initiation of a new era in Malaysian politics. Second, this handing over of the political baton parallels a similar process among scholars and intellectuals. Professor Wang Gungwu represents the 'senior tier' of Malaysianists while Messrs Terence Chong, Ahmad Fauzi Abdul Hamid, Lee Hock Guan and Farizal Haji Mohd Razalli represent the 'young' group" (The Straits Times).
