Legitimacy and Ethnicity:
A case study of Singapore
Peter A Busch
This interesting study was carried out in Singapore shortly after the Malaysian ethnic disturbances of 1969. The author seeks to examine the moral bond that ideally exists between the state and its citizens in order to make government work. How is this achieved in the more difficult circumstances of a racially mixed state where one race may be dominant? How is this legitimacy maintained when there is racial tension?
