About This Book

This monograph outlines the development of Singapore's media from the first government-subsidised newspaper to radio, TV, Rediffusion, the Internet and today's social media. Going beyond "just the dates", it shows how the media in Singapore had once been extremely competitive, that Singapore was a media hub for Malay intellectuals in the region and how the newspaper licensing rules were inherited from the British who set the tone by curbing an English-language newspaper called Singapore Herald published by a Japanese publisher in the 1940s. It's the Singapore media as few would have guessed.
