To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press are jointly launching the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015.

Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject. Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as an historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.

GOVERNANCE

Good governance is at the heart of Singapore’s development, forged in the furnace of the early challenges that Singapore faced after Independence, and shaped by its leaders to refl ect their long-term vision. This book chronicles key aspects of Singapore’s governance – such as incorruptibility, pragmatism and meritocracy – and demonstrates how institutions, policies and strategies combined to play a critical role in Singapore’s transformation from a Third to a First World nation. It offers references for readers to understand the origins of Singapore’s public policy and principles of governance.
