A Sensation of Independence:
David Marshall, A Political Biography
Chan Heng Chee
The author concentrates here on Marshall's brief, but significant, tenure as the first elected chief minister of Singapore. Although he only held office for a year, resigning on his failure to negotiate self-rule with the British, his successor and fellow Labour Front member, Lim Yew Hock, was more successful. Marshall's socialist anti-colonialist stance laid the foundations of modern day Singapore. 295 pages with an index.
