Fifty-six authors provide analytical reflections on how Singapore has been transformed from a colony into a thriving, modern, independent republic. It offers the most comprehensive evaluation of the achievements of the government and people of Singapore to date. An outline of the colonial context is followed by evaluations of government policy and practice; restructuring of the economy and accompanying social changes; concomitant modifications in the cultural matrix, and the way Singapore is responding to the information revolution and the changing international environment.
