"In this memoir, he also shares personal insights and lessons from his illustrious career spanning politics and academia, and high-level appointments on the international stage. He also provides readers with a rare insight into the inner workings and deliberations behind Singapore’s foreign policy practice, as well as wide-ranging law, order and security issues affecting the country. We believe that this book, together with Prof Jayakumar’s first title “Diplomacy: A Singapore Experience”, will give Singaporeans and foreigners a useful broad overview of the pragmatic and unflinching principles and policies that shaped Singapore’s development."
“Be At The Table or Be On The Menu: A Singapore Memoir” is available at leading bookstores at $27.82 (GST inclusive) from 7 May. The book can also be ordered from the Straits Times Press Online Bookstore at:www.stpressbooks.com.sg from 7 May onwards.
