“Lee Kuan Yew has long stood out as one of the century’s wisest and most consequential Asian leaders. This book, collecting accounts from close associates who joined him in building a new nation, makes an important contribution to the understanding of Lee Kuan Yew’s achievement.” - Henry A. Kissinger, former US Secretary of State Lee Kuan Yew was born in 1923, a time when Singapore was under British rule. After experiencing the Japanese Occupation of Singapore, he travelled to England to study Law. Mr Lee’s legal career in Singapore was marked by increasing political involvement. Together with a group of like-minded individuals, he formed the People’s Action Party (PAP) in 1954. Following the PAP’s victory in the 1959 Legislative Assembly general elections, Mr Lee became the first Prime Minister of Singapore, at the age of 35. He held this position until 1990. After stepping down from the premiership, he remained in the Cabinet until 2011, serving as Senior Minister and subsequently as Minister Mentor.
