Civil Society And The State In SingaporeCivil Society And The State In Singapore by Soon, Carol; Gillian Koh (Eds.)

Set within the context of rising political pluralism among the citizenry, bold ground-up conflict between the governing and the governed, and increasing adoption of the Internet and new media, the Institute of Policy Studies organised a Civil Society Conference on 11 November 2013. This collection provides a nuanced analysis of Singapore civil society's development over more than a decade and combines insights from experts from different domains, and sets out an agenda for the further development. The first section discusses the different approaches and philosophies that underpin civil society - engagement, collaboration, and ideological tensions. The second section examines change agents - technology, people, and politics - and their impact on civil society. The third section explores the future of civil society, in the areas of the non-profit sector, civic education, youth activism, legislation, and finally, ethnicity. The book provides the state-of-play in the civil society landscape and this should be of interest to watchers of political development in a soft authoritarian polity making its transition towards greater democratisation.

Singapore Perspectives 2016 - WeSingapore Perspectives 2016 - We by Siao See Teng & Justin Lee (Eds.)

In 2015, Singapore celebrated 50 years of independence. The Institute of Policy took stock of how the choices people made have led the city-state to where she is today. As achievements are being celebrated, a conversation about the road ahead also begins. With much nation-building efforts premised upon the existence of this imagined community known as "Singapore," it is an opportune moment to question and reimagine who "we" are. The book documents the conference proceedings at Singapore Perspectives 2016 where the fourth generation of government ministers presented their thoughts on the social, economic and political future of Singapore and engaged in dialogues with panelists and audience members on the directions the country should take.

Onstage Offstage by Lee, Bob

The getai is a live stage performance held each year during the Hungry Ghost Festival in Singapore and Malaysia. It forms an integral part of the month-long festival: local Chinese would burn incense paper to appease the spirits and performances would be held at various neighborhoods. In the past, performances were Chinese opera or puppet shows but have since evolved into a kitschy and gaudy combination of songs, dance and stand-up comedy. In Onstage Offstage, Lee questions the longevity of these performances, how long would it be before it becomes just that - a memory ?

This is the English translation of Isa Kamari's Potret Puisi Melayu Singapura, which features the works of 44 Singapore Malay poets, from the post-independence era to the present, and shows how the historical context, community and the individuality of the poet have given poetry written by Singaporean Malay writers its own distinctive identity.

HaikukuHaikuku by Gwee Li Sui

This volume could well be subtitled the social history of Singapore in 120 haiku. There are haiku about MRT breakdown, rat infestation, haze, 377A, hungry ghosts and cavorting community cats. There are also those of matters of socio-political import: 2011 GE, population management, personal data protection, leadership renewal and compassionate meritocracy. Gwee adds to his army haiku that won prizes from the SAF with others of a military theme in Purple Light and Tekong diarrhea. Then there are newsy haiku reporting on NIMBY, the royal visit, that Holland V bank robbery plus The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye. He does not forget the newsmakers either - the otters, the Little India Riot hero, A-Mei, Subhas Anandan, Phey Yew Kok, Joseph Schooling and that si geena who shall not be named. Also remembered is our dear Ah Kong in a pair of death anniversary haiku, and a sad one about the empty parade chair. There are haiku about our places we love, the hawker centre, cenotaph, kopitiam, Sungei Road, Singapore River…. This is book of haiku, backed by a nation-wide haiku writing contest, for every Singaporean - kuku or not.

Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery And Beadwork In The Peranakan WorldNyonya Needlework: Embroidery And Beadwork In The Peranakan World by Cheah Hwei-Fe'n

Cheah Hwei-Fe'n examines parallel techniques of embroidery, work with gold thread, lace, and drawn needlework in this profusely illustrated catalogue to accompany an exhibition at the Peranakan Museum, Singapore, held from 24 June 2016 to 18 June 2017. In her careful analysis of the techniques associated with Peranakan objects, she reveals a complex network of cultural connections. The various types of needlework were practised by women and men, and drew upon techniques from Europe, India, China, and the Malay world. Religious and secular schools taught the techniques. There are many cross-cultural surprises within: gold embroidery derives not only from European military brocade but from ancient Chinese thread techniques of gold strips wrapped around paper. And many other techniques were long practised in remote islands of the Malay Archipelago.

Merlion & Mt. Fuji, The: 50 Years Of Singapore-Japan RelationsMerlion & Mt. Fuji, The: 50 Years Of Singapore-Japan Relations by Tai Wei Lim

Anime, Manga, Sushi, Teriyaki, J-pop, Harajuku fashion ... these are just some of the cultural exports from Japan that the rest of the world have embraced and Singapore is one of Japan's biggest fans. There are similarities too between these two countries: an aging population, changing geopolitical realities, mature economies, and environmental challenges. 50 Years of Singapore-Japan Relations is not just a historical account of the bilateral cooperation but also includes honest narratives on what it is like being a Singaporean student on exchange in Japan, an anime and manga fan outside of Japan, and some omotenashi appreciation.

Singapore Eurasians: Memories, Hopes And DreamsSingapore Eurasians: Memories, Hopes And Dreams by Braga-Blake, Myrna; Ann Ebert-Oehlers Et Al (Eds.)

This book offers insight into the Singapore Eurasian community, one of Singapore's minority communities. This book is the definitive record of Eurasian history and heritage in Singapore, and serves to educate the younger generation of Eurasians about their roots, the community's achievements and its collective hopes and dreams for the future, as well as provide a useful resource for others to learn more about the Eurasian community. In addition, it also covers the growth and developments of the Eurasian community within the last 25 years, and how the Eurasian Association, as a Self-Help Group since 1994, has been helping the less fortunate through its programmes, as well as being the main force in driving the preservation and sharing of the Eurasian culture for its future generations.

Men Who Lost Singapore, 1938-1942, TheMen Who Lost Singapore, 1938-1942, The by Mccrum, Ronald

The British military failure against the Japanese invasion of Singapore in 1942 is a well-documented and closely examined episode. But far less attention has been paid to the role of the colonial governor and his staff during this period, an oversight Ronald McCrum corrects with this insightful history. As McCrum shows, the failure of the civil authorities in conjunction with the military to fully prepare the country for the possibility of war was a key factor in the defeat. McCrum closely examines the role and responsibilities of the colonial authorities before and during the war. He argues that the poor and occasionally hostile relations that developed between the local government and the British military hierarchy prevented the development and implementation of a strategic and unified plan of defense against the growing threat of the Japanese. Consequently, this indecisive and ineffective leadership led to significant losses and civilian casualties that could have been prevented.
