About This Book

These 10 informally written pocketbooks for young readers as well as busy readers present the public and political careers and also the human qualities of ten of Singapore's 'founding fathers'. All born in Colonial times, they each created building blocks, which went into the fabric of today's Republic. Cartoons, jokes, quotations and black-and-white photographs offer insights and sometimes unexpected sidelights onto the personalities and summary accounts of the subjects' political and other achievements during a period of profound social change. The ten 35-page-long books come in a slipcase and the titles are: David Marshall - The Legal Eagle Devan Nair - The Rebel with a Cause Lee Kuan Yew - The Man of Firsts Eddie Barker - The Gentleman Politician Goh Keng Swee - The Master Sculptor S. Rajaratnam - The Voice of a Nation Lim Kim San - The Big Builder Ong Pang Boon - The Unlikely Crime Buster Toh Chin Chye - The Quiet Revolutionary Othman Wok - The Dashing Peacemaker.
