About This Book

This book discusses the significance of multiracialism as one of the central components of nationhood in Singapore. It traces the manner in which race relations have been understood, developed, and managed from the colonial period to the present. Singapore's national security strategy remains primarily driven by the two conventional security concerns of protecting the country's sovereignty as well as maintaining public order. As such, a well-managed policy of multiracialism with its normative goal of maintaining social harmony is held to be key to the preservation of public order. In addition, multiracialism is key to nation-building in Singapore.
