Liberalism Disavowed: Communitarianism and State Capitalism in Singapore

By Chua Beng Huat

Singapore: NUS Press, 2017. Paperback. New. Although Singapore's economic success has brought the country into prominence, not only in Southeast Asia, but globally, probably few of the economy's overseas cheerleaders realise the extent to which this success is based on a challenge to Western liberal economic thinking. In this book the author traces the evolution of the three bases of the country's communitarian ideology - public housing, multiracialism and state capitalism - and their role in Singapore's transformation. He also looks at how the death of Lee Kuan Yew and the end of the Cold War have affected this development and how the dominant PAP Government has responded. 223 pages.
