Lee Kuan Yew : the grand master's insights on China, the United States, and the world by Kuan Yew Lee( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Lee Kuan Yew speaks, presidents, prime ministers, diplomats, and CEOs listen. Lee, the founding father of modern Singapore and its prime minister from 1959 to 1990, has honed hiswisdom during more than fifty years on the world stage. Almost single-handedly responsible fortransforming Singapore into a Western-style economic success, he offers a unique perspective on thegeopolitics of East and West. American presidents from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama have welcomedhim to the White House; British prime ministers from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair have recognizedhis wisdom; and business leaders from Rupert Murdoch to Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil, havepraised his accomplishments. This book gathers key insights from interviews, speeches, and Lee'svoluminous published writings and presents them in an engaging question and answer format. Lee offers his assessment of China's future, asserting, among other things, that "China will want to share this century as co-equals with the U.S." He affirms the UnitedStates' position as the world's sole superpower but expresses dismay at the vagaries of itspolitical system. He offers strategic advice for dealing with China and goes on to discuss India'sfuture, Islamic terrorism, economic growth, geopolitics and globalization, and democracy. Lee doesnot pull his punches, offering his unvarnished opinions on multiculturalism, the welfare state, education, and the free market. This little book belongs on the reading list of every world leader-- including the one who takes the oath of office on January 20, 2013"--MIT Press
From Third World to first : the Singapore story, 1965-2000 by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )

20 editions published between 1457 and 2011 in English and Thai and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few gave tiny Singapore much chance of survival when it was granted independence in 1965. How is it, then, that today the former British colonial trading post is a thriving Asian metropolis?" "The story of that transformation is told here by Lee Kuan Yew. Rising from a legacy of divisive colonialism, the devastation of the Second World War, and general poverty and disorder following the withdrawal of foreign forces, Singapore now is hailed as a city of the future. This history is recounted by the man who not only lived through it all but who forged ahead and brought about most of these changes." "Delving into his own notes, as well as previously unpublished government papers and official records, Lee details the extraordinary efforts it took for an island city-state in Southeast Asia to survive at that time."--Jacket
Translation of autobiography : narrating self, translating the other by Susan Xu Yun( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an interdisciplinary study that straddles four academic fields, namely, autobiography, stylistics, narratology and translation studies. It shows that foregrounding is manifested in the language of autobiography, alerting readers to an authorial tone with certain ideological affiliations. In refuting the presumed conflation between the author, narrator and character in autobiography, the study emphasizes readers' role in constructing an implied author. The issues of implied translator, assumed translation and rewriting are explored through a comparative analysis of the English and Chinese autobiographies by Singapore's founding father Lee Kuan Yew. The analysis identifies different foregrounding practices and attributes these differences to an implied translator. Further evidence derived from narrative-communicative situations in the two autobiographies underscores divergent personae of the implied authors. The study aims to establish a deeper understanding of how translation and rewriting have a far-reaching impact on the self- and world-making functions of autobiography. This book will be of special interest to scholars and students of linguistics, literature, translation and political science

The battle for merger by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )

20 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle for Merger charts the crucial years of 1961-1962, when the PAP government was in a precarious position and the future of Singapore was hanging in the balance. This commemorative book retains the authenticity of the transcripts of Lee Kuan Yew's twelve radio talks and appendices, which are exact reproductions of the original 1962 edition. Complete with nostalgic photographs of historical events as well as painstaking reproductions of secret letters and codes, this book also includes new material to give a comprehensive coverage on the intriguing subject of merger between Singapore and Malaysia. This publication contains the following: 1. A new message from Lee Kuan Yew that reveals the former prime minister's hindsight on merger -- 2. A comprehensive essay by Associate Professor Albert Lau that provides the historical background to merger -- 3. Concise notes to key players, places and events -- 4. MP3 audio recordings of the twelve radio talks in English, Mandarin and Malay. The battle for merger is a story worth retelling. This book is for all who want to understand what was at stake during those tumultuous times. Reading this would be akin to reliving the sensational moments created by Lee Kuan Yew's timely revelations during the twelve radio broadcasts. It tells of how the Old Guards stood up and fought back against the communists and later the communalists, of how they refused to be cowed and thus won the confidence of that generation, which went on to help build modern Singapore
