Singapore Chronicles: Eurasians
- About the Series
Singapore Chronicles: Eurasians explores the social history of Singapore Eurasians, focusing particularly on the 50 years since independence. The author, himself a Eurasian, also explains how one cardinal principle of post-colonial Singapore – the ideology and policy of multiracialism – has affected the evolution of the Eurasian identity. Eurasians are people who have both European and Asian ancestry. They face and overcome issues of identity in Singapore that appear not to apply to certain other ethnic minorities here. This book aims to aid others to understand the rich history and culture of Eurasians in Singapore.
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”.
