This book explores this inherent contradiction present in most facets of Singaporean media, cultural and political discourses, and identifies the key regulatory strategies and technologies that the ruling People Action Party (PAP) employs to regulate Singapore media and culture, and thus govern the thoughts and conduct of Singaporeans. It establishes the conceptual links between government and the practice of cultural policy, arguing that contemporary cultural policy in Singapore has been designed to shape citizens into accepting and participating in the rationales of government. Outlining the historical development of cultural policy, including the recent expansion of cultural regulatory and administrative practices into the ‘creative industries’, Terence Lee analyzes the attempts by the Singaporean authorities to engage with civil society, the ways in which the media is used to market the PAP’s policies and leadership and the implications of the internet for the practice of governmental control. Overall, The Media, Cultural Control and Government in Singapore offers an original approach towards the rethinking of the relationship between media, culture and politics in Singapore, demonstrating that the many contradictory discourses around Singapore only make sense once the politics and government of the media and culture are understood.

This book analyzes the relationship between political power and the media in a range of nation states in East and Southeast Asia, focusing in particular on the place of the media in authoritarian and post-authoritarian regimes. It discusses the centrality of media in sustaining repressive regimes, and the key role of the media in the transformation and collapse of such regimes. It questions in particular the widely held beliefs, that the state can have complete control over the media consumption of its citizens, that commercialization of the media necessarily leads to democratization, and that the transnational, liberal dimensions of western media are crucial for democratic movements in Asia. Countries covered include Burma, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

Government communication is a curiously neglected area of discursive analysis. No considered examination of the subject exists which provides either an account of the contemporary governmental landscape or an explanation of the common and divergent themes on both a domestic and international basis. This volume aims to fill that gap, providing a concise and illuminating case-study based review of government communication. It will be divided into three sections to reflect differences in both geography and political allegiances, scrutinizing continental Europe, Anglo-American traditions and newly emerging democracies. Offering a global and thematic account, it is an indispensable resource for all students of political communication.

Commentators on the media in Southeast Asia either emphasise with optimism the prospect for new media to provide possibilities for greater democratic discourse, or else, less optimistically, focus on the continuing ability of governments to exercise tight and sophisticated control of the media. This book explores these issues with reference to Malaysia and Singapore. It analyses how journalists monitor governments and cover elections, discussing what difference journalism makes; it examines citizen journalism, and the constraints on it, often self-imposed constraints; and it assesses how governments control the media, including outlining the development and current application of legal restrictions.

`An outstanding book on a significant topic... I recommend this highly to interested readers' - Arvind Singhal, Professor and Presidential Research Scholar, Ohio University `Imagi-Nations and Borderless Television neatly captures the revolution that television in Asia has gone through over the last 15 years.... Important for anyone wishing to understand the future of Asian television' - Andre Nair, Chairman and CEO Asia Pacific, Mediaedge: CIA `The book is overdue... a useful reference for anyone who is interested in the development of transnational television in Asia' - Joseph Man Chan, Professor of Communications, Chinese University of Hong Kong `Amos Owen Thomas takes us through this momentous change, with an extensively researched and cogently argued book. A must-read volume for scholars interested in television in Asia and around the world' - Daya K Thussu, Professor, University of Westminster The media and communications scene in Asia underwent radical transformation towards the turn of the 20th century. The advent in the early 1990s of transnational television via satellite caught Asia unawares, much as it has the world over. This book brings a transnational and inter-disciplinary perspective to understanding the media industry in Southeast, South and Northeast Asia. Imagi-Nations and Borderless Television demonstrates that the globalisation of cultural industries involves not homogenising westernization, but postmodern hybridisation. Amos Owen Thomas analyses how and why this has occurred within the larger context of economic, political, social and cultural processes within regions, nation-states, transborder ethnic communities, even international diaspora. He argues that in the case of transnational television, growth was influenced not just by governments and policy makers but also by the strategic management decisions of media owners, cable operators, satellite providers, ad agencies, marketers and other players, whether pro-active or reactive. Not only does this book explicate the processes of television globalization, it seeks to raise some socio-ethical issues that ought to be addressed in managing newer electronic media in these and other developing countries and emerging markets around the world. Challenging conventional notions about the cultural imperialism of global media conglomerates, this book is widely welcomed by a broad readership ranging from communication and media studies to multinational business, policy makers and NGOs. Amos Owen Thomas is an Associate Professor of International Business at the Maastricht School of Management, Netherlands.

On 9 August 2015, Singapore celebrated its 50th year of national independence, a milestone for the nation as it has overcome major economic, social, cultural and political challenges in a short period of time. Whilst this was a celebratory event to acknowledge the role of the People’s Action Party (PAP) government, it was also marked by national remembrance as founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew died in March 2015. This book critically reflects on Singapore’s 50 years of independence. Contributors interrogate a selected range of topics on Singapore’s history, culture and society – including the constitution, education, religion and race – and thereby facilitate a better understanding of its shared national past. Central to this book is an examination of how Singaporeans have learnt to adapt and change through PAP government policies since independence in 1965. All chapters begin their histories from that point in time and each contribution focuses either on an area that has been neglected in Singapore’s modern history or offer new perspectives on the past. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, it presents an independent and critical take on Singapore’s post-1965 history. A valuable assessment to students and researchers alike, Singapore: Negotiating State and Society, 1965-2015 is of interest to specialists in Southeast Asian history and politics.
