A second-class citizen in his own country, Tan Chin Tuan rose to the highest public office held by an Asian in his time. His ability to foster British and Asian communities helped smooth the early years of Singapore's transition from a colony to an independent nation-state. While his contributions to the public service ended in 1955, his banking and business influence continued to accelerate. His international reputation influenced the success of every company he guided - a virtual 'Who's Who' of Singaporean corporations. This book also reveals the obstacles and very real dangers he experienced, which were often obscured by his list of achievements.
