Never on Bended Knees
This collection of observations and thoughts on Singapore over the last two decades by Dr Chee Soon Juan adds crucially to a growing narrative of Singapore which varies from the official perspectives perpetuated by mainstream media.
Dr Chee goes behind the façade of Singapore, a city-state and examines the factors which had made the city so economically successful for the last 5 decades after Singapore’s independence, and highlights the longer-term implications of such factors which do not augur well for the future of the nation.
