Few people have watched the development of today's Singapore as closely as President S.R. Nathan, who celebrated his 90th birthday on 3 July 2014. In this engaging book, based on a series of informal interviews, Mr Nathan reflects on a wide range of historical and contemporary issues.
The conversations range over topics as diverse as: Singapore's place in the world • the future of China and India • the importance of conciliation • complacency • the importance of total defence • religion, tolerance and harmony • the value of education • the role of language • productive retirement • the lessons of history • impressions of pioneers
For this book, Singapore's former president, Mr S R Nathan, was interviewed by Timothy Auger. Tim has been responsible editorially for a wide range of books on Singapore and its neighbours, in his former capacity as Editorial Director of Editions Didier Millet, and more recently through his own company Link Editorial. He worked closely with Mr Nathan on the preparation of the latter’s memoirs An Unexpected Journey: Path to the Presidency, published in September 2011. Tim was also co-editor, under the leadership of Prof. Tommy Koh, of Singapore: The Encyclopedia. He devised and edited Celebrating the Past, Defining the Future, marking the 200th anniversary of Citi worldwide, and prepared in collaboration with Citigroup, Inc. in New York; and he is the author of Living in a Garden: The Greening of Singapore, published by NParks, the parks authority of Singapore, in 2013.
