Description
The perils of dissent in Singapore are at the heart of this poignant story of the country's most prominent opposition politician, J. B. Jeyaretnam. Following the career of this ambitious lawyer, prosecutor, and judge, the book traces his subsequent disenchantment with the system, his stunning political breakthrough at Anson in l981, and the devastating consequences of his direct opposition to Lee Kuan Yew and the ruling government. A chilling insight into Singapore's politics, the book also raises questions about Singapore's brand of "Asian democracy."
