Electoral Reform and Democracy in Malaysia
edited by Helen Ting M. H. and Donald L. Horowitz
Big political changes in Malaysia since 2018 have raised high expectations for electoral reform but much remains to be achieved. This impressive study takes stock of the state of democracy in Malaysia by offering readers a deep but readily understandable analysis of an array of electoral reform issues. Here is a resource that will interest the politically engaged as well as scholars of political process, a study that is both wide-ranging and focused, and a primer on electoral politics that will be of wide interest far beyond Malaysia.
A graduate of Sciences Po in Paris, Helen Ting is an associate professor at the Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (IKMAS), The National University of Malaysia (UKM). In addition to her work on electoral democracy, she has published widely on issues related to nationalism, identity and multiculturalism.

A close student of Malaysia, he has written extensively on electoral systems, ethnic conflict and accommodation, and constitutional design. Elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he has served as President of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy, and lectured at universities around the world.
