ABOUT THE BOOK/ BLURB

Singapore’s 2011 general election will go down in history as its most significant since independence. This volume offers a snapshot of the heady days leading up to Polling Day on 7 May 2011, and the immediate aftermath that saw seven ministers leave the cabinet. Nine established scholars evaluate the impact of this historic election from the perspectives of law, history, politics, media, and sociology.
