Singapore: Negotiating State and Society, 1965-2015

Lim, J. and Lee, T.(Eds)ORCID: 0000-0003-3333-0076 (2016) Singapore: Negotiating State and Society, 1965-2015. Routledge as part of the Taylor and Francis Group.


This book critically reflects on Singapore’s 50 years of independence. Contributors interrogate a selected range of topics on Singapore’s history, culture and society – including the constitution, education, religion and race – and thereby facilitate a better understanding of its shared national past. Central to this book is an examination of how Singaporeans have learnt to adapt and change through PAP government policies since independence in 1965. All chapters begin their histories from that point in time and each contribution focuses either on an area that has been neglected in Singapore’s modern history or offer new perspectives on the past. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, it presents an independent and critical take on Singapore’s post-1965 history.
