So much has changed in Singapore in the last 50 years that it's often impossible to keep track of things. This book presents a concise chronology of the most significant events in Singapore's history since 1965: from the milestones and the newsmakers to their impact on Singaporeans' daily life. Trace the nation's evolution in terms of the economy, the people, the environment. Follow the long-term ripples set in motion by laws, policies and campaigns. Re-live the feel of yesteryear through the popular music, fashion and hangouts of the day - what were you doing then? Singapore Year By Year is at once an invaluable reference book and a very human narrative of a half-century of change.
