From Third World to first : the Singapore story, 1965-2000 by Kuan Yew Lee( Book )
12 editions published between 1457 and 2011 in English and Thai and held by 1,098 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 "Delving into his own notes, as well as previously unpublished government papers and official records, Lee details the extraordinary efforts it took for an island city-state in Southeast Asia to survive at that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
Lee Kuan Yew the grand master's insights on China, the United States, and the world by Kuan Yew Lee( )
10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 655 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"--- From MIT Press
