As the first comprehensive study of its kind, this book analyzes the dynamics, processes, mechanisms, and consequences of socio-economic and political changes in Singapore Chinese society from 1945 to 1965. By employing a wide range of primary materials that have been rarely used before, the authors have demonstrated the multi-dimensionality and complexity of the Chinese society in postwar Singapore, which was full of vitality and politically active. They argue that the combination of the internal dynamism and the changing socio-political framework shaped the nature and characteristics of the Chinese community and its fundamental role in the making of modern Singapore. This study is essential reading for an understanding of not only the Chinese politics and business networks in postwar Singapore, but also the historical evolution of the newly independent Republic.
