Product Description

A memoir of LIM Chin Joo, this is a book about his life as a kampong boy growing up against the backdrop of the Second World War, who was later caught up in the anti-colonial struggles that led to his 9-year imprisonment without trial in the 1950s and 1960s. It is a personal account of an important period in the history of Singapore which shaped Singapore in its formative years. Covering the main historical events in Singapore in the 1950s and 1960s, and major personalities (including Lee Kuan Yew, Lim Chin Siong, TT. Rajah, Lim Hock Siew, Robert Soon and Lee Siew Choh), it brings back the historical setting of Singapores anti-colonial struggles and fight for independence, a tale of how the young idealists pursued their dreams and ideals, how the history shaped their life stories, and the price they paid for their dreams. Rare photographs of people, places and events have been added as valuable illustration.
