Urban Life in Southeast Asia

In this chapter I illuminate the ways in which Singaporeans negotiate complex social, cultural, and economic environments in their everyday lives. In this way, I illustrate how various Singaporeans confront the realities of life within a city that is co-terminal with the boundaries of the state. With the elimination of the last vestiges of the rural sector in the last few years, Singapore1 is now a totally urbanized society entirely committed to what is sometimes termed the “modernist project,” that is, of effectively bringing the whole of life under the regime of efficiency, technology, and managerialism. For these reasons, the study of Singapore society is not only of interest in the comparative ethnography of Southeast Asia, but is of much wider theoretical interest to scholars of urbanism, modernity, and social planning.
