Singapore

by

Maurice Freedman

This fascinating study by an anthropologist who was commissioned by the British Government gives the reader a snapshot of Singapore life based on research carried out for almost two years between 1949 and 1950. The main aim of the work is to study how the family functioned then in Chinese Singapore society, how it differed from mainland family life and the influences that spurred adaptation, if any. The chapters of this 249 page book include

  • 1 - The Social Background,
  • 2 - The Household,
  • 3 - The Kinship System,
  • 4 - The Structure of Marriage,
  • 5 - The Formation of Marriage,
  • 6 - Marriage Disrupted and
  • 7 - Death and its Cult.
  • There are also an appendix of tables, another on Chinese characters for Hokkien words used in the text and an index.
