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. This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.
The vicissitudes of history, from Raffles’ purchase of the Singapore island from a Malay sultan to the short-lived merger with Malaya, have left a lasting mark on the Malays of Singapore. This book offers a glimpse of the community as it adapted to its minority status and responded to the myriad challenges of historical, social and political changes.
