Abstract

Malaysia's pseudo-democracy has begun to change. On one side, in the wake of economic crisis Malaysia's politics started to unravel in fuller democracy. Analysis is guided by the work of Haggard and Kaufman on crises and democratic transitions. More recently, though, amid partial economic recovery, the government has checked democratizing pressures. Nonetheless, it has been unable to reequilibrate its pseudo-democracy fully, prompting it to tighten the regime in a baser form of authoritarianism. After having persisted for three decades, Malaysia's pseudo-democracy has lost resilience.
