Item description for Goh Keng Swee by Tan Siok Sun...
Dr. Goh Keng Swees public career spanned two eventful decades. He was a founding and key member of Singapores ruling political party, and played a significant role in creating and shaping the destiny of Singapore today. His areas of responsibility were wide-ranging, including finance, defence, and education. Based on extensive research, including interviews with family members, friends and colleagues, this is an anecdotal account of Dr Gohs life-story told by the author, his daughter-in-law. The author traces Dr Gohs footsteps from his humble beginnings in Melaka, to his days at Raffles College and the London School of Economics, to his service in the Singapore Government, and, finally, to his eventual retirement. Above all, his achievements in helping to create the modern landscape of institutions, environments and values that constitute Singapore today represent a vital legacy for the nation's present and future generations.
