Prelude to the Post-Lee Kuan Yew Era

22Nov12

New books on Singapore and Lee Kuan Yew launched — in Malaysia, for obvious reasons.  Malaysia Chronicle:

Comparison and analysis about the styles and qualities of two notorious Southeast Asian autocrats – Lee Kuan Yew and Mahathir Mohamad – are bound to be reignited with the release of two books published this year to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Singapore’s infamous Operation Spectrum that saw 22 social activists, lawyers, journalists and church workers detained without trial in May 1987.

One of the books ‘Prelude to the Post-Lee Kuan Yew era’  written by political exile Tan Wah Piow, who was thrown into jail for allegedly “masterminding a Marxist plot”, will be launched on Saturday 24 November at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall in Kuala Lumpur …

Wah Piow will also participate in a panel discussion to be moderated by social activist Maria Chin Abdullah at 2pm to 4pm. The other speakers are political analyst Wong Chin Huat and Dr G Raman, a Singapore laywer and former legal adviser to the University of Singapore Students’ Union in 1969.
