Giants of Asia ; Conversations with Lee Kuan Yew : Citizen Singapore ; How to Build a Nation by Tom Plate( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political genius is never without controversy, or without mystery. This is what makes it so interesting and so rare. Is Lee Kuan Yew the feral, authoritarian figure that Western critics claim? Or a stoic pioneer in new approaches to developing a nation-uncorrupt, modern, almost scientific? American journalist Tom Plate first interviewed the founder of modern Singapore in 1996 in a continuing back-and-forth with LKY that led to the summer of 2009, when the former prime minister agreed to sit down for two days of unprecedentedly informal but intense conversations that led to this special book. Th
Conversations with Lee Kuan Yew : citizen Singapore : how to build a nation by Tom Plate( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enter into the mind of this controversial but internationally respected political leader and pioneer, through the eyes and ears of one of America's leading journalists on Asia. First ever personal interview between Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew and a syndicated American journalist. Compelling insights that bring the reader into the mind of Singapore's first prime minister. Wide ranging topics from LKY's views on China to US presidents and revelations about his personal family life. Imagine the delight and challenge of entering into a one-on-one political and personal conversation with the founding father of modern Singapore. This is exactly the timely treat that awaits you in Conversations with Lee Kuan Yew. The first in the Giants of Asia series, this succinct, penetrating, richly detailed and candid book on Lee Kuan Yew represents the Asian legend's first extended conversation with a Western journalist. The result is often surprising, sometimes startling, occasionally humorous - and never, ever dull."--Publisher's description

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going home is an iconic theme of literature and music that touches everyone's heart.

Only eight people have been privileged to hold the job of Secretary General since the United Nations founding in 1945. And only one of them has ever told the inside story of the UN while still holding that special office. That man is Ban Ki-moon, the veteran diplomat and former star foreign minister of South Korea now in his second term as UNSG. Because he understands that the UN is in crisis and because he fears the reasons for this are not widely understood he believes it is time to unveil the truth about the organization and explain why its failure would be a catastrophe

He began his professional career as a family physician but wound up prescribing innovative political medicines for the entire nation that remain controversial even today. Was he exactly the bold and fearless policy doctor that the troubled body politic of Malaysia needed?

Only history's judgment can offer the final verdict but Dr Mahathir himself is in no doubt. In a riveting series of unprecedented conversations, Malaysia's most famous former prime minister reveals to American journalist and author Tom Plate a panoramic panoply of views on governing, on Islam, on Jews, on the West and on Malays that are striking in historical sweep and contemporary relevance

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Kuan Yew was anything but a coaster, giving it all he had until the very end. And when his long and exceptional life came to its natural end in March 2015, at 91, the outpouring of respect was worldwide. This man, whatever his faults, had been a giant of his time. Over a few decades, he led the grand parade to build modern Singapore and in the process practically redefined quality government for all to see. His views on global geopolitics were universally regarded as benchmark savvy. But what was this often private and guarded 'Giant of Asia' truly like? Drawing on interviews with LKY in t
