About This Book

This is a complex study of some of the complexities of Singapore identity and recent history. Many areas of Singapore's economic and political development are discussed including patterns of immigration in the Colonial and late Colonial periods; the influence of international Communism and of nationalist movements; globally oriented Islam; Japan's ethnically-based policies 1941-45; post-1946 Indonesian radicalism; Malaya's "Emergency" and insurgency of the 1950s. These revolutionary or quasi-revolutionary influences and activities are highlighted not only as history but as relevant in Singapore's present fostering of a Singaporean identity.
