About This Book

These ten substantial referenced essays mark the 40 years of Singapore's Constitution which has changed profoundly since 1965 when Singapore became an independent state. Specialist lawyers and academics explore areas of law and history since the 1965 appointment of the Constitutional Commission. These include laws and their application in state and institution building; comparative interpretation; aspects of constitutional supremacy; protecting rights; minorities; constitutionalism and subversion with case material; legal literature; and retrospective and prospective issues of power/justice/culture balance. With tables of cases and legislation, and index.
