Bonsai is accessible yet profound—as one critic in Chile’s Capital newspaper put it, “Brief as a sigh and forceful as a blow.”

At that time, 70s and the Britannica volumes had been published in the 50s, this particular encyclopedia had a tendency of abbreviating the descriptions and the knowledge about anything about which they knew nothing! So as nobody was there to tell them about me nature plants and miniature shrubs, which were so common in the mysterious East and Oriental Gardens, they had just written about two paragraphs about them. So I went to the source of more information, father and asked him to elucidate. He immediately explained that bonsai was the Japanese name given to plants, which were fully grown trees, but were miniature. He also explained about little orange trees, which were about 12 to 18 inches in size and were laden with orange fruit. This was very fascinating. We needed bonsais in our garden, I and my younger brother. Like right now.

Détails: Since his undergraduate days in Cambridge, George Yeo has spoken and written much in and out of government. Many remember the things which he said or wrote years ago. This book is a compilation of some of his best speeches and writings which were selected by Asad Latif and Lee Huay Leng in consultation with him. The book has a rather unusual title because there are many aspects to George Yeo which makes him difficult to classify. As a student leader, he was radical but conciliatory. In the Singapore Armed Forces, he was atypical, moving from the Army to the Air Force before becoming Director of Joint Operations and Planning. In politics, he is fondly remembered by artists, journalists, doctors, businessmen and foreign diplomats, and by his colleagues and constituents. His own staff said he had a curious mind. They complained that he rarely used the drafts which they had prepared for him. George Yeo describes himself as a Taoist even though he is a Roman Catholic and is now on the Papal staff. Buddhists are surprised he championed the revival of Nalanda University as an international project. He remains close to Singaporeans of different races and religions even though he has a deep sense of his own ancestral roots and religion. In politics, he has been described both as a liberal and a conservative. In his Parliamentary maiden speech, he spoke of the importance of democracy but has repeated many times that democracy is only a means and not an end in itself. He has a deep interest in history which partly explains his seeing the re-emergence of China and India earlier than most others. The bonsai and the banyan are metaphors he uses for Singapore. Singapore is a city-state and must never have an inflated view of itself. The bonsai describes Singapore modestly, but he adds that the bonsai can be intensely interesting and valuable. The banyan provides shade and we are grateful for it, but too much makes us weak. As for the Tao, that perhaps is what gives unity to his many interests. Contents:Singapore and PoliticsCulture and ValuesMedia and Social MediaGeopoliticsAppendices Readership: The general public, policy-makers and academics keen on Asian politics and international relations. Keywords:George Yeo;Singapore;Politics;Economy;PAP;General ElectionReviews: "This is a wonderful book by one of the foremost statesmen and social thinkers of our time. Though the themes covered display a huge variety in this wide-ranging collection of essays and speeches by George Yeo, there is a foundational interest in Asia's vast possibilities that motivates his illuminating and powerful reflections." Amartya Sen Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences “Every reader will take away something from the collection … I thought I knew what made me personally appreciate him as a political figure. The fuller picture revealed in his speeches shows us someone who is searching deeply and widely for answers to the human condition. This is someone we should all want to know better.” Professor Wang Gungwu Chairman of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and East Asian Institute "As can be seen in this splendid collection of speeches and commentaries, George Yeo's knowledge is wide-ranging as well. He can speak informatively about everything from the arrival and impact of the Internet in traditional societies to the role of city-regions in a globalized world to the woes and wonders of multi-ethnic and multi-religious polities. The reader will be well-rewarded by delving into this rich depository of insights and ideas." Nicolas Berggruen Chairman of the Berggruen Institute and Berggruen Holdings "This thick tome by George Yeo may help you pass your General Paper exams. His views can be unconventional and unexpected. For some, this book could be a collection of quotable quotes. For others, hopefully a challenge to rise and make Singapore a great home for us all." Mothership.sg Singaporean digital news agency “George Yeo's thinking is clear, consistent, and, at times, controversial. It is underpinned by a deep knowledge of history. This collection of speeches provides timely insight into the development of Singapore — and food for thought on some of today's most challenging issues.” Sunday Morning Post "It demonstrates the breadth of knowledge, depth of thinking, and the rare penmanship that communicates his perspectives in a style both lucid and succinct … The gems of wisdom in this book were crystallized by an avid scholar of international relations, philosophy, public policy, and area studies, who embodies the ideals of a scholar-statesman with notable achievements in military, academia, politics, religion and business."

Détails: This book tells the awe-inspiring stories of bonsai and penjing trees in the collection of the National Arboretum in Washington D.C. It details their valuable role in international diplomacy and as instruments of American presidential influence. It also describes their inclusion in world's fair exhibitions, in Asian-inspired gardens around the country, and as a window onto the extensive cultivation of bonsai in North America today. An extensive first-hand account by Dr. John L.

Détails: Jun Nagai, heir to a prominent Japanese spinning empire, takes his new English wife Kate back to Japan after some time in England absorbing Western technology. This is a marriage his arrogant and powerful mother Itsuko, who controls the family business, finds hard to accept and she sets out to destroy it. Jun, fighting for his independence, is pulled between the two cultures owing loyalty to both. Thrown into a strange and incomprehensible world, where the role of a wife is so different, Kate is soon stripped of all her romantic illusions. Her struggle to retain her individuality and adapt to her new environment after a shattering encounter lead her to work as an interpreter. In a bar she meets Tarnura, a business rival of the Nagais. When escaping from him, Kate finds herself in Kamagasaki, a place she thought could not exist in the modern miracle of Japan. Here she discovers Japan’s race of untouchables, the Burakumin, the gangsters, the destitutes and an ancient area of prostitution like no other in Japan. Her terrifying flight through the red light district – the dustbin of a society in which failure has no place – and her rescue by Father Ota, a Japanese Christian missionary, brings her to a new understanding of the culture she has married into.

Détails: **Winner of the 2015 Gelett Burgess Award for Best Intercultural Book** **Winner of the 2015 Silver Evergreen Medal for World Peace** This true children's story is told by a little bonsai tree, called Miyajima, that lived with the same family in the Japanese city of Hiroshima for more than 300 years before being donated to the National Arboretum in Washington DC in 1976 as a gesture of friendship between America and Japan to celebrate the American Bicentennial. From the Book: "In 1625, when Japan was a land of samurai and castles, I was a tiny pine seedling. A man called Itaro Yamaki picked me from the forest where I grew and took me home with him. For more than three hundred years, generations of the Yamaki family trimmed and pruned me into a beautiful bonsai tree. In 1945, our household survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. In 1976, I was donated to the National Arboretum in Washington D.C., where I still live today—the oldest and perhaps the wisest tree in the bonsai museum."

Détails: Japan’s official surrender to the United States in 1945 brought to an end one of the most bitter and brutal military conflicts of the twentieth century. U.S. government officials then faced the task of transforming Japan from enemy to ally, not only in top-level diplomatic relations but also in the minds of the American public. Only ten years after World War II, this transformation became a success as middle-class American consumers across the country were embracing Japanese architecture, films, hobbies, philosophy, and religion. Cultural institutions on both sides of the Pacific along with American tastemakers promoted a new image of Japan in keeping with State Department goals. Focusing on traditions instead of modern realities, Americans came to view Japan as a nation that was sophisticated and beautiful yet locked harmlessly in a timeless “Oriental” past. What ultimately led many Americans to embrace Japanese culture was a desire to appear affluent and properly “tasteful” in the status-conscious suburbs of the 1950s. In How to Reach Japan by Subway, Meghan Warner Mettler studies the shibui phenomenon, in which middle-class American consumers embraced Japanese culture while still exoticizing this new aesthetic. By examining shibui through the popularity of samurai movies, ikebana flower arrangement, bonsai cultivation, home and garden design, and Zen Buddhism, Mettler provides a new context and perspective for understanding how Americans encountered a foreign nation in their everyday lives.
