This book considers the proliferation in Malaysia over the past two decades of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) associated with various social movements, both to provide basic information about the NGOs and social movements, and to discuss their role in the development of civil society generally in particular their contribution to the reform movement, which has been gathering strength since 1998. The book discusses the nature and development of the movements, and shows that those movements concerned with human rights and women's issues have made significant contributions to the reform movement and been irrevocably changed by their involvement in it.

'The editors should be commended for producing a phenomenally rich book that adds to our knowledge on Malaysian NGOs and gives one a solid basis through which to think about strategies for political change' - Journal of Contemporary Asia
