Product Description


"Singapore's combination of policy dynamism, political authoritarianism and economic prosperity is regarded as paradoxical by many social scientists. Mauzy and Milne, in this comprehensive, judicious and informed volume, have done more to explain this paradox than any of their predecessors. "James Cotton, Australian Defense Force Academy.""Diane Mauzy and RS Milne should be congratulated for having written this excellent book on politics in Singapore. It is in the same class as Michael Leifer's book on Singapore's Foreign Policy. "Tommy Koh, Director, The Institute of Policy Studies, Singapore."

About the Author

Diane K. Mauzy is Professor of Political Science at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. R.S. Milne is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of British Columbia and a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
