Politics

20Sep06

It recently struck me how little I know of Singapore’s history. When I was over in London, I was enthralled by the stories behind their monuments and discussions of their past. Yet, my limited knowledge of Singapore extends mainly to Sang Nila Utama and Sir Stamford Raffles.

From the reviews, it seems to offer an eclectic pick of Singapore’s personalities and landmarks. I guess all that’s holding me back at the moment is the $75 price tag (speaking of which, some people still owe me $70 for my self-bought birthday present, *cough cough*)

Currently though, i’m fortifying my political local knowledge by reading Lee’s Law. Having already read about Francis Seow’s account in ‘To Catch a Tartar’, i’m now curious to find out more about JBJ in particular. Anyway for the interested, the above book is available in the CJ Koh Law Library, so it’s not like I brought in a banned book or anything ok.

Maybe after reading all these books i’ll be better equipped to handle the politics of law school.
