When Lee Kuan Yew speaks, presidents, prime ministers, diplomats, and CEOs listen.Lee, the founding father of modern Singapore and its prime minister from 1959 to 1990, has honed hiswisdom during more than fifty years on the world stage. Almost single-handedly responsible fortransforming Singapore into a Western-style economic success, he offers a unique perspective on thegeopolitics of East and West. American presidents from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama have welcomedhim to the White House; British prime ministers from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair have recognizedhis wisdom; and business leaders from Rupert Murdoch to Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil, havepraised his accomplishments. This book gathers key insights from interviews, speeches, and Lee'svoluminous published writings and presents them in an engaging question and answer format.Lee offers his assessment of China's future, asserting, among other things, that"China will want to share this century as co-equals with the U.S." He affirms the UnitedStates' position as the world's sole superpower but expresses dismay at the vagaries of itspolitical system. He offers strategic advice for dealing with China and goes on to discuss India'sfuture, Islamic terrorism, economic growth, geopolitics and globalization, and democracy. Lee doesnot pull his punches, offering his unvarnished opinions on multiculturalism, the welfare state,education, and the free market. This little book belongs on the reading list of every world leader-- including the one who takes the oath of office on January 20, 2013.

Ali Wyne is a researcher at the Belfer Center.
