Episode 27: The Living Buddha

Dr. Thum Ping Tjin, University of Oxford

29-Apr-16 15:00

Episode 27: The Living Buddha

If you read English-language sources, David Marshall appears naive, weak, and irresponsible as Chief Minister. If you read Chinese-language sources, Marshall appears as courageous, principled hero, fighting on behalf of the downtrodden and oppressed people of Singapore. Why the difference? In this episode, PJ Thum discusses David Marshall’s tenure as Chief Minister from April to December 1955, how he was seen by Singapore’s various peoples, and how perspectives change historical narratives.

Hear more about the Life and Legacy of Lee Kuan Yew in this interview with Dr. Thum Ping Tjin shortly after the passing of the Father of Singapore.
