Singapore. NUS Press. 2008. Stock ID #123669
xiv + 306pp, bibliography, index, paperback. Paths Not Taken explores the political and cultural movements that characterized Singapore's era of pluralism from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, a time of extraordinary cultural, intellectual, and political dynamism when students, labor unions, ambitious political contenders, and representatives of various ethnic communities offered alternate visions of Singapore's future. Representing the entire political spectrum, they generated a ferment of ideologies, priorities, perspectives, and social visions that mainstream politics in the country had never known before and has not seen since. The book presents an alternative vision of Singapore's postwar history by exploring the character and origins of Singaporean civil and political movements that operated outside the sphere of the People's Action Party.
