From Third World to first : the Singapore story, 1965-2000 by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )

14 editions published between 1457 and 2011 in English and Thai and held by 1,032 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 "Delving into his own notes, as well as previously unpublished government papers and official records, Lee details the extraordinary efforts it took for an island city-state in Southeast Asia to survive at that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

The battle for merger by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )

9 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and held by 76 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

Lee Kuan Yew presided over the transformation of Singapore from a fractious and squalid colonial backwater into one of the shining jewels of Asia. In less than half a century, through economic and social engineering, Singapore has melded a multi-ethnic, multi-racial population into a thriving, safe and productive society that boasts the world's busiest maritime port, nearly nonexistent unemployment, and a lower infant mortality rate than the United States. In this volume that chronicles the social and economic triumphs that made headlines around the world, Lee Kuan Yew reveals the strategies that made him one of the world's most powerful elder statesmen, and takes a look at the burgeoning economic and political might of China and its portents for the future. --From publisher's description

Lee Kuan Yew : hard truths to keep Singapore going by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in Chinese and English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented in Q&A format, and enriched with strong contextual narrative, each chapter features Lee in full flow – sometimes combative, occasionally querulous, but always engaging. His views are articulated forcefully, with forays into history to buttress his point. To him, Singapore is a miracle that could disappear if not for exceptional leadership and safeguards. Here is Lee at 87, an unrepentant believer in strong government, in genes, and in the view that economics trumps freedoms. This book presents the politically incorrect Lee, often impatient and dismissive of those who criticise his worldview. He is not one for regrets. He does not recant. But there are moments when he looks back and thinks he could have done things differently or been more accommodating. Readers will gain insight into Lee’s mind as he ruminates, argues, thinks aloud and rebuts
