Book Description

This book explores the impact of cultural identity, the internal configurations of the educational field, and the struggles both inside and outside the educational systems of post-World War II Singapore and Hong Kong. By comparing the school politics of these two nations, Wong generates a theory that illuminates connections between state formation, education, and hegemony in countries with dissimilar cultural makeups.

"Wong has been able to examine and critically analyze the fate of Chinese schools and their interactions with the government authorities in these two city-states. The summaries of the complicated historical case studies in Hong Kong and Singapore are concise and highly informative." -- History of Education Quarterly
