Christopher Cheang is a Senior Fellow at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies of the Nanyang Technological University. He is a former diplomat who served as First Secretary and subsequently Counsellor and Deputy Chief of Mission in the Singapore Embassy in Moscow. His book revolves around the professional and personal experience of living and working in Moscow of a Singapore diplomat, beginning in the aftermath of the USSR's collapse and ending in the first decade-and-a-half of this century. It deals with not only the sociopolitical and economic challenges of Russia's post-Soviet leaders, but also those facing the man-in-the-street. The presentation brought together renowned politicians and public figures of Russia and Singapore.
