Marina Mahathir is one of Malaysia's most fascinating voices: compassionate, outspoken, liberated and unabashedly liberal, usually generous, sometimes wicked, never parochial and always proudly Malaysian.
Marina's 'Musings' columns for The Star newspaper are a talking point in Malaysia's capital and throughout the country. They began as a regular personal commentary on Marina's everyday life as a mother, but as time went on the range expanded. Her writing came to touch on, and often debate, vital issues of national and global importance, and are eagerly read by a huge public.
As a mother, a committed AIDS worker, daughter of the Prime Minister, publisher and activist, Marina engages directly with the troubles and triumphs of Malaysian society as it reaches towards a new millennium.
This book collects the best of these columns between 1991 and 1997, and Marina herself introduces the pieces, putting them into perspective.
Marina Mahathir has worked as a journalist, public relations practitioner, television producer and as a women's rights and HIV/AIDS activist. She served as president of the Malaysian AIDS Council for 12 years from 1993–2005. She is also the daughter and eldest child of the Malaysia's longest-serving prime minister. In 2010 she was named UN Person of the Year by the United Nations in Malaysia.
