This facsimile edition of Alex Josey’s Lee Kuan Yew: The Crucial Years (1968) contains practically everything that Singapore’s first prime minister had said politically since his student days at Cambridge right up to his speeches at the 1971 Commonwealth Prime Minister’s Conference held in Singapore. More than a political biography of a remarkable Asian statesman, this indispensable volume shows how Lee successfully created an independent multiracial nation while tackling and solving problems which confront all developing states. The account ends in 1970 when Singapore was faced with the gloomy prospect of the withdrawal of British troops in 1971, and the necessity of creating, almost overnight, a credible Singapore defence force.

The late Mr Lee Kuan Yew (1923–2015) laid the foundations for the creation of a first-world education system in Singapore. Like many other issues concerning the country, his ideas for education were transported in a red box, which he took with him wherever he went, even up to his last days. Inside it was always something designed to help create a better life for all Singaporeans. The editors of this volume were inspired by the idea of Mr Lee’s red box and by the Founding Father’s selfless drive to continuously improve the country he loved. As such, the book explores in detail Mr Lee’s plans, including chapters on Education: The Man and His Ideas; Foundational Pillars of Singapore’s Education; Education for Nationhood and Nation-Building; and 21st Century Readiness and Adaptability. The chapters also include the authors’ visions, no matter how great or small, for the future of education in Singapore. They explore how Mr Lee’s educational policies resulted in a system that attracts the right and best candidates to become teachers; that forms them into effective teachers, specialists and leaders; that ensures they and the education system are able to deliver the best possible learning for every child; and that establishes a legacy that has allowed the education system to continue to move forward while tackling the challenges of its success. From the little red box came the ideas that led to the country’s meteoric rise. Likewise, the editors hope this book will lead to a brighter future in education.

Gewinner der Silver Medal des Axiom Business Book Award 2016 Auf der Liste der Bloomberg Best Books 2016 Mit einem exklusiven Vorwort von Star-Ökonom Nouriel Roubini $uper-hubs enthüllt, wie die Finanzelite und ihre mächtigen Netzwerke das Weltgeschehen – und damit unser aller Leben – beherrschen. Super-hubs sind die am besten vernetzten Knotenpunkte innerhalb des Finanznetzwerks, wie Milliardär George Soros, JP-Morgan-Chef Jamie Dimon und Blackrock-Boss Larry Fink. Ihre persönlichen Beziehungen und globalen Netzwerke verleihen ihnen finanzielle, wirtschaftliche und politische "Super-Macht". Mit ihren Entscheidungen bewegen sie täglich Billionen auf den Finanzmärkten und haben somit direkten Einfluss auf Industrien, Arbeitsplätze, Wechselkurse, Rohstoffe oder sogar den Preis unserer Lebensmittel. Als Insiderin der Hochfinanz nimmt Sandra Navidi Sie mit hinter die Kulissen dieses Mikrokosmos der Macht: zum Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos, zum Internationalen Währungsfonds, zu Thinktanks, Benefizgalas und glamourösen Partys. Sie beleuchtet die Menschen, die hinter abstrakten Institutionen und Billionen an Kapital stehen, ihr Erfolgsgeheimnis, ihre privilegierte Existenz und die Auswirkungen auf unser Finanzsystem und damit auch auf die Zukunft unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Erstmals überhaupt gibt Sandra Navidi damit einen Einblick in die sonst hermetisch abgeriegelte Machtelite.

"This is a bold project recording the lives of a particular group of Southeast Asians. Most of the people whose biographies are included here have settled down in the ten countries that constitute the region. Each of them has either self-identified as Chinese or is comfortable to be known as someone of Chinese ancestry. There are also those who were born in China or elsewhere who came here to work and do business, including seeking help from others who have ethnic Chinese connections. With the political and economic conditions of the region in a great state of flux for the past two centuries, it is impossible to find consistency in the naming process. Confucius had stressed that correct names make for the best relationships. In this case, Professor Leo Suryadinata has been pursuing for decades the elusive goal of finding the right name to give to the large numbers of people who have, in one way or another, made their homes in, or made some difference to, Southeast Asia. I believe that, when he and his colleagues selected the biographies to be included here, they have taken a big step towards the rectification of identities for many leading personalities. In so doing, he has done us all a great service." - Professor Wang Gungwu, National University of Singapore

How Singapore’s solutions to common problems can provide examples for other societies. Nearly everyone knows that Singapore has one of the most efficient governments and competitive, advanced economies in the world. But can this unique city–state of some 5.5 million residents also serve as a model for other advanced economies as well as for the emerging world? Respected East Asia expert Kent Calder provides clear answers to this intriguing question in his new, groundbreaking book that looks at how Singapore’s government has harnessed information technology, data, and a focus on innovative, adaptive governance to become a model smart city, smart state. Calder describes Singapore as a laboratory for solutions to problems experienced by urban societies around the world. In particular, he shows how Singapore has dealt successfully with education, energy, environmental, housing, and transportation challenges; many of its solutions can be adapted in a wide range of other societies. Calder also explains how Singapore offers lessons for how countries can adapt their economies to the contemporary demands of global commerce. Singapore consistently ranks at the top in world surveys measuring competitiveness, ease of doing business, protection of intellectual property, and absence of corruption. The book offers concrete insights and a lucid appreciation of how Singapore's answers to near-universal problems can have a much broader relevance, even in very different societies.

Michael Barr explores the complex and covert networks of power at work in one of the world's most prosperous countries – the city-state of Singapore. He argues that the contemporary networks of power are a deliberate project initiated and managed by Lee Kuan Yew – former prime minister and Singapore’s ‘founding father’ – designed to empower himself and his family. Barr identifies the crucial institutions of power - including the country’s sovereign wealth funds, and the government-linked companies – together with five critical features that form the key to understanding the nature of the networks. He provides an assessment of possible shifts of power within the elite in the wake of Lee Kuan Yew’s son, Lee Hsien Loong, assuming power, and considers the possibility of a more fundamental democratic shift in Singapore’s political system.

Singapur 1937. Walter Blackett, Direktor eines britischen Kautschukunternehmens, weiß sich von der bewährten Ordnung britischer Kolonialherrschaft getragen, als er die Feierlichkeiten zum hundertjährigen Jubiläum seiner Firma ausrichtet. Noch ist die Welt, zumindest für die Engländer, in Ordnung, haben die Da Dousa Sisters ihre Gesangsauftritte, ist der zerzauste Hund La Condition humaine nur halbtot und gibt es standesgemäße Paraden und Feste. Und doch scheint am Vorabend des Zweiten Weltkriegs im Inselstaat einiges in Schieflage geraten zu sein : Kaum ist ein Streik der Einheimischen niedergeschlagen, flammt er an anderem Ort wieder auf, Walter Blacketts Sohn engagiert zur Abendunterhaltung ausgerechnet einen Fakir, seine Tochter Joan tändelt mit den falschen Verehrern, während der junge Matthew, Oxfordstudent und rechtmäßiger Erbe der Firma, sich als naiver Weltverbesserer erweist. Das Geschäft mit dem Kautschuk boomt, nicht zuletzt wegen des Weltkriegs und der Marktmanipulation durch Blackett selbst, doch als japanische Flieger das völlig unvorbereitete Singapur bombardieren, kann der Schock größer nicht sein. Während Matthew herauszufinden versucht, was es mit dem ›Würgegriff von Singapur‹ auf sich hat, ist der Mythos von der Uneinnehmbarkeit Singapurs bereits brutal zerschlagen.
