Description

In this fully updated, third edition of Crossroads, Jim Baker adds new information following recent government elections in Malaysia and reviews the policies and impact of the next generation of Singapore leaders

The original text (which traces the complex currents of history and politics of Malaysia and Singapore—neighbours with a common past) is also rewritten and revised to re-evaluate events in the context of an expanded history.

“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
