Former ambassador Dennis Ignatius, author of the best-selling book Paradise Lost: Mahathir and the End of Hope, sits down with former attorney general Tommy Thomas in an open conversation.
They discuss the insider view of the second Dr Mahathir Mohamad administration, the issues that defined the Pakatan Harapan government, including 1MDB, racial and religious polarisation, the hudud bill, and where we are headed as a nation.
