The contributors in this collection study developments in Malaysia's dominant party, UMNO, on the anniversary of its 70th year. The answers to its future lies in part with a better understanding of its past. Four international academics analyse the contemporary history of UMNO, with a particular focus on changes in the last two decades. They draw attention to issues of party identity, leadership, membership, governance, institutional change, party financing, internal divisions and its relations with different communities and the public at large. Not only does this book fill an important gap in the scholarly research on UMNO, this book offers different perspectives on the party's contemporary challenges.
The recent past has been tumultuous for Malaysia. Malaysia has been rocked by economic uncertainties, political turmoil and allegations of financial scandals. The economy has had to face domestically generated shocks and well as those emanating from external sources. Regional developments have been fast-paced, too. At a micro level, issues such as education and health have generated controversy and they could turn out to be problematic if not handled carefully. These issues, if ignored, could adversely affect Malaysia's economic development. If addressed correctly, Malaysia will move up the ladder of development. The present collection of essays attempts to capture the challenges that Malaysia faces.
Nearly everyone knows that Singapore has one of the most efficient governments and is among the most competitive advanced economies in the world. But can this unique city-state of some 5.5 million residents serve as a model for other advanced economies as well as for the emerging world? Respected East Asia expert Kent Calder provides clear answers to this intriguing question in his new, groundbreaking book. Calder describes Singapore as a laboratory for solutions to problems experienced by urban societies around the world. But there are caveats: the city-state comes in at only "partly free" in the Freedom House democracy rankings and, like many other developed nations, faces growing inequality. Singapore: Smart City, Smart State addresses these deficits while also offering concrete insights and a lucid appreciation of how many of Singapore's answers to near-universal problems can have a much broader relevance, even in very different societies.
Malaysia's sultans have in recent years taken on an increasingly discernible role in the country's political life. However, rather than something new, the rulers' resurgence should be viewed as part of a longer term negotiation over the precise boundaries of their role. The Sultan of Johor, Ibrahim Ismail, is arguably the most visible of the country's rulers at present. While the more ceremonial aspects of his actions are inspired by the pivotal role traditionally played by Malay rulers, the more operational aspects hark back to the colonial era when Johor had a reputation for modern administration, well-developed infrastructure, and a high degree of autonomy. At its core, the Sultan raises questions about Malay leadership, and may revive a long-standing contest between the rulers and the political elite, sometimes referred to as a battle between "princes and politicians".
In celebration of Singapore's 50th birthday, the Eurasian Association published this SG50 book which features 50 Eurasians from diverse fields of expertise who have contributed in one way or another to Singapore's nation-building over the last fifty years.
Alfred Wong Hong Kwok is an architect whose working career spanned more than half a century. He was deeply involved in the birth of our local architectural institutions, and was the President of the Singapore Institute of Architects for four years. He has designed many significant buildings that paralleled the physical and social developments of modern Singapore. From the SATA clinic in Changi and several parish churches, he subsequently designed the National Theatre, the Marco Polo Hotel, the Singapore Polytechnic campus, Saint Joseph's Institution, the PSA Keppel Distripark, and many other important buildings and building complexes. This book chronicles a lifelong passion for architecture and music, two themes that recur in the book chapters. It also details a life that has been interwoven into significant eras of Singapore's development beyond its status as an accidental nation.
Neither Civil Nor Servant captures the half a century career of the former Economic Development Board chairman, telling the stories of brilliant achievements almost unparalleled in the history of the Singapore civil service. Yeo was the man who turned Batam into a household name in Singapore, created Jurong Island from seawater and put the country on the biomedical map globally with its iconic Biopolis. The famous rule breaker bulldozed his way through the bureaucracy he was a part of, blazing new paths in a manner more akin to an entrepreneur than a civil servant. In the process, he offended more than a few and was never afraid to challenge naysayers publicly, regardless of status and background.
In early 2016, Resorts World Sentosa hosted ten Singapore poets at the SEA Aquarium, inviting them to write a series of haiku, a popular poetry form rooted in classical Japanese poetry, in response to the exhibits the group visited. The reflections of those poets are recorded in three languages (English, Mandarin, and Japanese) in Equatorial Calm, the first poetry anthology to include these three languages in Singapore's publishing history. Each poet has contributed eight pieces to the anthology, which are accompanied by the artwork of Namiko Takahashi Chan-Lee.
The brave fighters of the Communist Party of Malaya lived hard lives in the jungles, pledging allegiance to the Party above all else. But despite their dedication, many were lost due to a traitor in their midst - one so high-ranking that nobody would have suspected him. Dave Anthony's historical novel follows the developing love of two of the guerrilla fighters; the multiple identities of their Beloved Leader and the uneasy cooperation between the British and the communists against their common enemy. The Red Bicycle tells a fascinating story inspired by the Communist Party of Malaya's most infamous operative. Weaving together fact and fiction, Dave Anthony has produced a compelling historical narrative that spans four South East Asian countries. More importantly, he has provided a window into the lives of Party members by highlighting the personal relationships of his main characters. In so doing, he succeeds in giving them a human face; something conspicuously absent in most other accounts of the Party.
Questions of identity and humanity galvanise the twelve stories in this provocative and eclectic collection by S. Mickey Lin, and original new voice in speculative fiction.

Uncanny Valley will gnaw on the corners of your mind and challenge your ideas on society and what it means to be human.
What if you could dream up any building you like? What would it be? How would constructing it change our lives? A shopping mall self-destructs, and a single mother vanishes. A tree house for orphans and old folks is torn apart by an act of mercy. The Singapore Flyer is reinvented as a political prison. In this collection of nine tales, Clara Chow examines an alternative Singaporean landscape-one that exists only on paper-and the people we might be in it. A former newspaper correspondent, she interviews nine architects about chimeric structures and sets short stories in them. A hybrid of journalism and fiction, Dream Storeys documents the voices of urban visionaries, while taking their ideas into inventive, evocative new territories.

Organised by National Gallery Singapore in association with Tate Britain, Artist and Empire: (En)countering Colonial Legacies critically examines the effects of the British Empire through the prism of art. This catalogue accompanying the exhibition underscores the thought-provoking ways in which artist and Empire each affect the other-artists negotiating historical conditions of colonialism in their work, visual representation altering perceptions of the Empire. Essays by exhibition curators and external scholars situate the concept of Empire within broader socio-political discourse, while selected key artworks from the exhibition are paired with curatorial text that illumines concerns underpinning the works. A comprehensive, pull-out timeline spanning the 16th to 20th centuries charts the scope of activities undertaken in the name of the Empire, and contextualises the pursuits of artists from former colonies.
What is modernism in Southeast Asia? What is modern art, as embodied in the paintings of Southeast Asia? These questions and more are answered in Reframing Modernism: Painting from Southeast Asia, Europe and Beyond, published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name. Featuring 217 works, in full colour, by 51 Southeast Asian and European artists, from the Centre Pompidou and National Gallery Singapore, as well as other Southeast Asian collections in the region and beyond, this catalogue tells the compelling story of modernism as it developed across continents, and reveals artists' powerful, and sometimes surprising, responses to modernity.
Developed as an exploratory study of artworks by artists of Singapore and Malaysia, Retrospective attempts to account for contemporary artworks that engage with history. These are artworks that reference past events or narratives, of the nation and its art. Through the examination of a selection of artworks produced between 1990 and 2012, Retrospective is both an attribution and an analysis of a historiographical aesthetic within contemporary art practice. It considers that, by their method and in their assembly, these artworks perform more than a representation of a historical past. Instead, they confront history and its production, laying bare the nature and designs of the historical project via their aesthetic project. Positing an interdisciplinary approach as necessary for understanding the historiographical as aesthetic, Retrospective considers not only historical and aesthetic perspectives, but also the philosophical, by way of ontology, in order to broaden its exposition beyond the convention of historical and contextual interpretation of art. Yet, in associating these artworks with a historiographical aesthetic, this exposition may be regarded as a historiographical exercise in itself, affirming the significance of these artworks for the history of Singapore and Malaysia.
This third volume of the Narratives in Malaysian Art series, Infrastructures , examines the development of the structures that support art and art appreciation in Malaysia. Capturing some of the history of the art scene as it has grown over the decades, it also looks at the state of our infrastructure today, mapping the key areas of art institutions, artist-run initiatives, the art market, art education, and art writing and publication. In this volume, many voices come together to share their experiences and the challenges of working towards a healthy and vibrant Malaysian art scene, and their concerns and hopes for its future. Documenting roundtable sessions and conversations among art scene stakeholders, the volume also includes interviews, selected articles, commentary, maps, surveys and other data, providing valuable information and perspectives for cultural policy-makers and all who have a share and interest in Malaysia's cultural life.
The fully illustrated catalogue for the Singapore Biennale 2016 - titled 'An Atlas of Mirrors' - presents artworks by 63 artists and artist collectives from Southeast, East and South Asia. Forging the literal and metaphorical characteristics of the atlas and mirror into a prismatic instrument of vision and thought, this fifth edition of the Singapore Biennale draws on diverse artistic viewpoints that trace the migratory and intertwining relationships within the region, and reflect on shared histories and current realities with wider Asia. The Biennale artworks - which include several new commissions - are organised under nine subthemes, each with its own introductory essay by one of the nine Biennale curators. The publication also features curatorial texts on each of the artworks, an introduction by Creative Director Dr Susie Lingham and essays by John N. Miksic, Joan Kee and Michelle Lim.
Recent studies of intra-Asian trade and Buddhist networks have brought fresh perspectives to the understanding of the pre-modern interaction between South and Southeast Asia. Through centuries of selective adaptation and localization of intellectual, cultural, aesthetic, and economic exchanges Buddhist art in Asia has continued to thrive. Fresh research and archaeological data help locate centres of exchange which catalysed the process of localization. This collection of essays, based on a conference held in conjunction with On the Nalanda Trail: Buddhism in India, China and Southeast Asia, an exhibition organized by the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore, is a re-exploration of Buddhist art, archaeology, and epigraphy. Focussing on ancient monastic centres and temples such as Nalanda, Mainamati, Kizil, Kedah, Dulesi, and Longxingsi Dabeige, papers in this volume offer newer perspectives on aspects of text-image-inscription correlation. This volume is an attempt at interdisciplinary study of cross-cultural trails that lead to localized Buddhist practice patterns and artistic diversities.
Treasures from the national museums of Myanmar, from the World Heritage Site at Pyu, the pagoda-studded plains of Bagan, and from Mandalay, the last royal capital, are examined in this profusely illustrated catalogue. Essays cover the principal archaeological sites of Pyu, Mon, Bagan, Inwa, Shan State, and Mandalay.
This is the first detailed study of Jimmy Ong's art by renowned art historian T. K. Sabapathy. It springs from lengthy, intense conversations between the artist and the writer, excerpts of which are included. Borobudur and Bukit Larangan are thematic drives for examining his recent pictures. Images of 14 drawings from the period will be reproduced on double-spread pages, in addition to 21 illustrations. Jimmy Ong's creative practice is defined by the human figure and by drawing. Whereas figures in earlier works are autonomously dominant, now they dramatise events and encounters between individuals derived from history and mythology; these representations require elaborate depictions of landscape. When we examine these aspects, Jimmy Ong's pictures may be connected with the historical art traditions in Southeast Asia in which narrative is predominant. In looking at these aspects too, Jimmy Ong's works may be related to modern and contemporary representations of narrative in Southeast Asia which have yet to be explored. Intimations of these connections are proposed here.
Iskandar Jalil is celebrated as one of Southeast Asia's most prominent ceramicists. Known for his high level of discipline, tenacity and dedication, this Colombo Plan scholar is a recipient of multiple accolades including the Cultural Medallion and the prestigious Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette for his outstanding achievement in visual arts. Published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition at National Gallery Singapore, this catalogue illuminates Iskandar Jalil's enduring relationship with clay, his journey to become a master in his craft and the pivotal role he plays in expanding the practice of ceramics.
Situated in Singapore's two national monuments, the building of National Gallery Singapore balances the need to create a distinct identity for the art spaces with a simultaneous celebration of architectural, cultural and historical significance, telling a story of competition, challenges, preservation and innovation.
Christianity in Asia explores the spread of the religion across Asia, and the art it inspired. This fully illustrated catalogue is aimed at a general audience, and accompanies the first exhibition exclusively dedicated to this topic. The book shows how local artists interpreted well-established Christian iconography, with new materials, and in often surprising ways. Essays explore earliest Christian art in Central Asia, India, and China; interest in Christian art at the Islamic courts; and works associated with missionary activities in China, South and Southeast Asia, and Japan.

Port Cities perfectly encapsulate a fundamental human and cultural process that has existed since time immemorial - the constant mixing of things together. Such places, and the powerful cultural dynamics that took place within and between them, reflect how people, ideas, and objects circulate, and how culture is formed, spread, and shared.

This book explores a cross-section of war crimes trials that the Allied powers held against the Japanese in the aftermath of World War II. More than 2,240 trials against some 5,700 suspected war criminals were carried out at 51 separate locations across the Asia Pacific region. This book analyzes fourteen high-profile American, Australian, British, and Philippine trials, including the two subsequent proceedings at Tokyo and the Yamashita trial. By delving into a large body of hitherto underutilized oral and documentary history of the war as contained in the trial records, Yuma Totani illuminates diverse firsthand accounts of the war that were offered by former Japanese and Allied combatants, prisoners of war, and the civilian population. Furthermore, the author makes a systematic inquiry into select trials to shed light on a highly complex - and at times contradictory - legal and jurisprudential legacy of Allied war crimes prosecutions.
Cornelis Matelieff de Jonge (c.1570?1632) was admiral of the Dutch East India Company when it sailed to Asia in 1605 and besieged Portuguese Melaka in 1606 with the help of Malay allies. A massive Portuguese armada then arrived from Goa to fight the Dutch and succeeded in breaking the siege on the Portuguese colony. Throughout this time, Matelieff penned a series of letters in which he provided a candid assessment of trading opportunities and politics in Asia. Admiral Matelieff's Singapore and Johor offers an edited selection of Matelieff's most important writings from this period, focusing on his experience and interest in Singapore and the Straits of Melaka. The rediscovery of Matelieff's writings have helped to reshape the way local history is taught and understood in Singapore and Malaysia, and this collection will be essential to scholars of the region.
Comintern (Communist International, 1919-1943) files kept in a Russian Archive were opened to the public in 1991. Various documents relating to the Malayan Communist Party (MCP) were contained therein. Relying on these documents, this research reveals many important and hitherto unknown facts. Consulting with previous works done by C.F. Yong, Cheah Boon Kheng and others, we can identify the extent to which the British colonial Special Branch intercepted them. The inaugural congress of the MCP, which initially depended heavily on the Comintern's instructions, was held on 22-23 April and 21 May 1930. Consistent pivotal points of the instructions were to refrain from armed insurgency and to make every effort to obtain the support of Malays and Indians. Although instructions were stopped after 1935, the MCP continued sending reports until the Pacific War started. These reports depict its internal disputes between the left wing and the right wing, which is supposed to have been headed by Lai Teck. Without instructions from the Comintern, the MCP further strengthened its influence among the people through labour as well as anti-Japanese movements.
The Mekong Program on Water, Environment and Resilience (M-POWER) is a network of organizations and individuals collaborating to democratize water governance in the Mekong Region. Since 2006, M-POWER has developed and implemented a wide range of activities across Cambodia, southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. This final book in the series of books examining the work and achievements of the network brings us full circle. A decade on, it is far from obvious that the promises of democratization and improved public accountability are inevitable. The need for multi-disciplinary scholarship and constructive contestation remains.
Communicating with Asia brings together an international team of leading researchers to discuss South, South-East, East and Central Asia, and explore Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi-Urdu, Malay, and Russian as major languages. The volume locates English inside a number of national, regional or lingua franca contexts and illustrates the way it develops in such contact situations. Local dynamics affecting languages in contact and cultural links of languages are dealt with, such as educational-political issues and tensions between conflicting norms. In today's global world, where the continent is an increasing area of focus, it is vital to explore what it means to 'understand' Asian cultures through English and other languages. This important new study will be of interest to students and researchers working in the fields of regional studies, English as a global language, Asian languages and cultural studies.
In the 1920s and 1930s, the port-cities of Southeast Asia were staging grounds for diverse groups of ordinary citizens to experiment with modernity, as a rising Japan and American capitalism challenged the predominance of European empires after the First World War. Both migrants and locals played a pivotal role in shaping civic culture. Moving away from a nationalist reading of the period, Su Lin Lewis explores layers of cross-cultural interaction in various spheres: the urban built environment, civic associations, print media, education, popular culture and the emergence of the modern woman. While the book focuses on Penang, Rangoon and Bangkok - three cities born amidst British expansion to the region - it explores connected experiences across Asia and in Asian intellectual enclaves in Europe. Cosmopolitan sensibilities were severely tested in the era of post-colonial nationalism, but are undergoing a resurgence in Southeast Asia's civil society and creative class today.
