The Scripting of a National History: Singapore and Its Pasts
Hong Lysa & Huang Jianli
Like many Governments elsewhere, the Peoples Action Party in Singapore has sought to construct a history that suits is past and current policies. Aspects of this version of history include starting the island's history with the arrival of the British and emphasising the importance of an interpretation of Confucian values in policy decisions and daily life. In this book the authors compare this official version of history against the more nuanced version uncovered by academic historians. New Paperback. 300 pages with a bibliography and an index.
