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, the Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food.
Each volume in the series is designed as a primer on the subject, focusing on its essential aspects and giving a historical perspective. The authors are subject experts from the public sector, academia and journalism. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
Forty-five volumes have been published. Buy the books at Straits Times Press.
