Description - Lee Kuan Yew by Graham Allison
Discover the key insights and controversial opinions on globalization, geopolitics, economic growth, and democracy from grand strategist and founder of modern Singapore Lee Kuan Yew, five years after his death.
When Lee Kuan Yew spoke, presidents, prime ministers, diplomats, and CEOs listened. Lee, the founding father of modern Singapore and its prime minister from 1959 to 1990, honed his wisdom during more than fifty years on the world stage. Almost single-handedly responsible for transforming Singapore into a Western-style economic success, he offered a unique perspective on the geopolitics of East and West. American presidents from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama welcomed him to the White House; British prime ministers from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair recognized his wisdom; and business leaders from Rupert Murdoch to Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon Mobil, have praised his accomplishments. This book gathers key insights from interviews, speeches, and Lee's voluminous published writings and presents them in an engaging question and answer format.
