Rodan, G. (2001) Introduction. In: Rodan, G., (ed.) Singapore. Ashgate, Aldershot; Burlington, USA, xi-xxxviii.


This valuable collection of previously published essays identifies and analyses the major social dynamics shaping contemporary Singapore - a city-state whose achievements and departures from orthodoxy command worldwide attention. The volume ranges across such issues as the character of the state and its institutions, the domestic consequences of globalization, the possibilities of political reform, ideology and culture, and new pressures on social policy. Collectively, this set of essays provides a lively and informative account of an increasingly complex society, economy and policy.
