Abstract

One would think that writing a book based on Singapore’s ruling party would be relatively easy, especially if the authors are seasoned journalists with the oldest dominant newspaper of a country where the same party has ruled since independence. To the contrary, said Leong Weng Kam, Richard Lim and Sonny Yap, veteran Straits Times writers and authors of Men In White: The Untold Story of Singapore’s Ruling Political Party – a book that was not to be "propaganda", but try selling that to party-detractor, opposition, former-detainee interviewees, and then peddling the same claim to the general reading public.
