On 9 August 2015, Singapore celebrates its 50th year of national independence, a milestone for the nation as it has overcome major economic, social, cultural and political challenges in such a short period of time. Whilst this is a celebratory event to acknowledge the role of the government of the People s Action Party (PAP), it will also be marked by national mourning as founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew died during 2015. This book critically reflects on 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 Singapore s shared national past. Central to this book is an examination of how Singaporeans have learnt to adapt and change in the face of policies introduced by the PAP government 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 offers new perspectives on the past. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, this book presents an independent and critical take on Singapore s post-1965 history.

A valuable assessment to students and researchers alike, "Singapore "is of interest to specialists in Southeast Asian history and politics."
