Product description


Jim Baker's Crossroads is bound to raise more than a few eyebrows in more than a few quarters. His book presents a side of history not many may be aware of or even want to know - it is as thought-provoking as it is enlightening.

-The Sun (on the first edition)

Baker's thrilling book profits from his refusal to separate Singapore's history from Malaysia's. What we get is a broad story filled with surprising details drawn from his own experiences and from other scholarly works, and told in an easy and captivating style. Dr Ooi Kee Beng, Fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore --Dr Ooi Kee Beng, Fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore
