About This Book

Lee Kuan Yew's second volume of his memoirs recounts experiences at home and abroad since Singapore started to go it alone as a nation in 1965. Character sketches, personal asides and succinct observations illuminate the discussion of national and international events and strategies in the period which included the Vietnam War, the decline of Maoism and many far reaching changes in regional and global weightings. Whether or not the reader agrees with or approves of Mr Lee's priorities or policies, it will be impossible to ignore this book, which will remain a primary text and an interpretation of a personality whose influence has stretched well beyond the 'little dot on the map' that is Singapore.
