9789971693961: Impressions of the Goh Chok Tong Years in Singapore

Singapore experienced substantial changes during the 14-year tenure of the country's second Prime Minister, Goh Chok Tong (1990-2004). Coming after a long period of growth and stability, the period brought to office a new generation of political leaders who faced the task of sustaining and building upon the policies of their predecessors. There were social and cultural initiatives and significant challenges to the economy arising from the Asian crisis of 1998 and the SARS outbreak in 2003. This volume examines the changes that took place during the Goh premiership and assesses its legacy. The 45 essays in the volume review a range of issues from domestic politics and foreign policy to economic development, society, culture, the arts and media.

Review:

... an incisive first draft of the Goh years for the layman ... With government decisions made mostly behind closed doors, we can expect little insider feel from the book. But to their credit, the essayists connect the dots compellingly enough to offer new insights. --The Straits Times, Singapore
