About This Book

C.M. Turnbull's contributions to historical writing on Singapore was extensive, with a particular focus on political and economic history. Studying Singapore's Past had its origins in a conference organized to discuss her work. The volume includes ten contributions, some from long-established scholars of Singapore's history, others from a new generation of researchers. Their work offers an evaluation of established understandings of Singapore's history, and gives an indication of new directions that researchers are exploring. In publishing the book, the editor not only pays tribute to a distinguished historian but also makes a contribution to the historiography of Singapore and to ongoing debates about Singapore's past.
