This is a detailed study of the political career of Datuk Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (b.1939) up to his election as Prime Minister of Malaysia. Born into a respected, politically active family in Penang Datuk Abdullah, an administrative civil servant, entered politics in 1978. His rise was steady but affected by the preeminence of a later 1998 sacking of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. All this is set into context and Datuk Abdullah's consistent religious non-confrontational approach becomes evident. The final chapter looks at a range of opinions and projections of the Prime Minister's priorities and prospects. Bibliography.
