Description - The Scripting of a National History by Hong Lysa

Singapore and its Pasts studies the constructed nature of the history endorsed by the state, blurring the distinction between what happened in the past, and how that past is made to be understood. The People's Action Party (PAP) government's unbroken mandate to rule has come in no small part from how it explains its lineage and record to the electorate.
