Marina Mahathir continues to make her mark as a community leader, writer and outspoken commentator on social and political affairs. She is also the eldest child of Malaysia's longest-serving prime minister.

Marina has for more than 20 years written an insightful and provocative column which is published fortnightly in The Star newspaper. Dancing On Thin Ice is the third compilation of these columns to be be published by EDM, and features her most recent work from 2012 onwards as well as several of her best articles from earlier years.

In Dancing On Thin Ice, Marina draws attention to the many dangers faced by Malaysia and raises and addresses issues that concern her and her fellow citizens. Along the way she recalls conversations with Nelson Mandela, proposes that Kuala Lumpur's National Mosque twin with St John's Cathedral, applauds the Malaysians who aid orphans of other faiths and admits to feeling like Alice in Wonderland.

The book showcases Marina's perceptiveness and wit and her willingness to speak up for the vulnerable and defenceless. It also demonstrates her common-sense approach to tackling the challenges that beset right-thinking Malaysians, making the book essential reading for everyone interested in Malaysia and in making it a better place.
