About This Book

These 13 specialist, separately referenced papers explore aspects of Singapore's social planning and policies. Their origins, rationale, implementation, consequences and sometimes contradictions are addressed. Policies relating to the traditional areas of health, education, ageing and income maintenance, and also less traditional matters of heritage, the arts, crime and are all discussed in some depth. The final paper offers comparisons with other countries in the region. Index.
