State and Family in Singapore:

Restructuring a Developing Society

-

Janet W. Salaff

This fascinating book looks at the transformation of once impoverished families in Singapore, mainly engaged in providing unskilled and cheap labour for mass produced goods, into a middle class retrained with improved technical skills for more complex assembly work. The change was driven by state policy prompted by Singapore losing ground to cheaper labour elsewhere. Besides better income and increased skills, the families also went through profound social changes which are documented in this anthropogical study. 301 pages.
