Abstract:
The life story of Tan Boon Jin, a young Confucian scholar who left China to seek a new life in Singapore during the colonial era. Set against the backdrop of the Chinese revolution at the turn of the century, the story is solidly based on facts and features prominent historic figures like Dr. Lim Boon Keng. Boon Jin becomes embroiled in the political struggles of the overseas Chinese revolutionaries as he attempts to reconcile Confucianism and nationalism.
