159 pp., illustrations. Exile is not a choice, but a response to lawless oppression. The narratives in this collection might awaken readers from their complacency and make them question the relevance of the Internal Security Act, a law that makes a mockery of democracy. The six authors -- Ang Swee Chai, Francis Khoo Kah Siang, Tan Wah Piow, Tsui Hon Kwong, Tang Fong Har and Ho Juan Thai -- speak of their narrow escapes in the 1970s and 1980s, and their lives then and now with frankness, humour and sadness, but always with optimism and hope for Singapore and the world.
