In this fully updated, second edition of Crossroads, Jim Baker adds two new chapters that bring Malaysia and Singapore into the middle of the first decade of the 21st century. The original text (which traces the complex currents of history and politics of Malaysia and Singaporeneighbours with a common past) is also revised to re-evaluate events in the context of an expanded history. Jim Bakers Crossroads is bound to raise more than a few eyebrows in more than a few quarters. His book presents a side of history not many may be aware of or even want to know it is as thought-provoking as it is enlightening. The Sun (on the first edition). Bakers thrilling book profits from his refusal to separate Singapores history from Malaysias. What we get is a broad story filled with surprising details drawn from his own experiences and from other scholarly works, and told in an easy and captivating style. Dr Ooi Kee Beng, Fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore
