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.

Great book. I really liked the early history and the modern history. The 70s and 80s read like a political party and politician soup at times.
Great Book for anyone interested in this part of the world.

We visited Singapore last year and wanted to learn more about the history of this part of the world. This book was well written and covered the history from it's first inhabitants to recent times. An easy read that was hard to put down.
