Singapore Chronicles is a series launched in conjunction with the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore, by providing analysis as well as historical accounts on a variety of uniquely Singaporean topics.
'Singapore Chronicles - Heritage' provides a guide to Singapore heritage and its preservation and promotion since 1959, when Singapore first attained full self-government and thereafter for the first 50 years of Independence. Heritage means different things to different people. This book conveys the thoughts of policy-makers, conservationists, architects, city planners, museum curators, historians, academics and community advocates – a diversity that attests to the wide range of ways in which heritage has an impact on the lives of Singaporeans. As heritage has no end point, the book concludes with a reflection on the future of heritage – whence it came, where it goes.
