Singapore Chronicles: Diplomacy

PART OF Singapore Chronicles SERIES
Publisher: Straits Times Press
  • Description
  • About the Series
  • Singapore Chronicles: Diplomacy shows how Singapore has dealt with many daunting challenges: separation from Malaysia; Independence; Communist insurgency; racial tensions; confrontation with immediate neighbours; wars in Southeast Asia; oil shocks and financial crises; the waxing and waning of major powers; and terrorism, pandemics and transboundary pollution - and how diplomacy has played a significant part in Singapore’s success story abroad over the past 50 years.

    Singapore’s diplomacy has distinctively combined the characteristics of overcoming vulnerability; linking national security with economic development; being proactive in international affairs; and emphasising cooperation with multiple partners. The book also derives lessons from the past half-century that can help Singapore develop even more agile diplomatic responses and far-sighted strategic planning.

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

    This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. 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 a historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
