This compilation of articles critically examines the policies and programmes of the Pakatan Rakyat state governments in Penang and Selangor from 2008 to 2012. The articles are culled from former Research Officer to the Selangor Menteri Besar Tricia Yeoh’s monthly column in the Penang Economic Monthly magazine (now Penang Monthly), also named ‘States of Reform’.
A rare comparison between two similar states, the book examines the last four years’ worth of programmes and efforts, as the yardstick by which Pakatan Rakyat’s potential as a future federal government can be measured.
