Independence '65: Was Singapore Booted Out? (Paperback)

£15.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

On the 9th of August 1965, Lee Kuan Yew declared Singapore an independent nation. The world was shocked. At the time, many people were under the impression that Singapore had been booted out of Malaysia. However in 2015, excerpts from secret documents titled 'The Albatross Files' were publicly released, revealing a highly orchestrated separation and providing fresh perspective to the traditional narrative.What actually happened in 1965? This book takes a behind-the-scenes look at the events leading up to Singapore's historic split from Malaysia. The primary sources linked to the independence of Singapore and the variety of perspectives will prompt readers to reexamine the traditional narrative of this vital moment in Singapore history.The lesser known story told in Independence '65 will allow Singaporeans to better comprehend the effort that went into Singapore's conception as an independent state.
