The Ruling Elite of Singapore: Networks of Power and Influence

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    The Republic of Singapore was born on 9 August 1965 through a formal act of separation from the Federation of Malaysia. Much of the population greeted it with fireworks in the streets,3 but Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew greeted it with tears that were immortalised by the television cameras.4 This historic moment was followed by a short-term breakdown of his health and mental equilibrium, which took months to fully recover. 5
