Lim Kit Siang; Malaysian First (Volume Two): Bold to the Last Battle picks up from the cliffhanger at the end of Volume One to present a story full of intrigue, heart-tugging moments, dramatic twists and turns—and even some laughter and joy. What comes through unmistakably is Kit Siang’s resilience in fighting for his Malaysian Dream—his lifelong vision for a united, democratic and prosperous nation in which all citizens will have the opportunity to achieve success and find fulfilment. We see in this story how he is able to set aside deep-seated political differences and forgive the political enemies who had unfairly inflicted pain and suffering on him—and his son—for the sake of realizing that Dream.

We also see the important role played by Kit Siang’s devoted wife and children in giving him the support he needs as he battles the forces set on dividing the nation, stealing from the people and destroying the rule of law. Malaysia would not be what it is without the political struggles and sacrifices of Lim Kit Siang and his fight for his Malaysian Dream. As this biography shows, he has proven unfailingly throughout his long career that he is not only someone who truly cares for his country and its people, but is also a visionary ahead of his time.
