“An incisive commentary on the socio- political foibles of the nation…serious, fearless, and critical…deliciously rendered…” Datuk Seri Lim Chong Keat.

Few people are as known for their robust advocacy against corruption not only in Malaysia, but globally, as Tunku Abdul Aziz. As a measure of his standing in the international anti-corruption community, he was appointed Special Adviser to the UN Secretary General in 2006. In that capacity, he established the United Nations Ethics office in New York, putting in train the ‘whistle blower protection’ programme and the ‘declaration of assets’ programme involving some two thousand top officials around the world. In Malaysia he led a group of like-minded individuals to set up Transparency International Malaysia at a most difficult time – when Dr. Mahathir, well known for his ambivalence towards corruption in public life, was Prime Minister.

Straight Talk is a collection of articles published by the News Straits Times that display Tunku’s insightful and responsible critique of his home nation. Oftentimes blunt and always eloquent, perceived injustices and mal-administration, flawed processes and personalities, and also praise-worthy acts and individuals, have never been so ably addressed.
