This chapter looks at the emergence and clash of different trajectories of tendencies in Singapore's history, focussing on the period 1819 to the 1970s. It thus uses a long duration and thematic approach to explain Singapore's eventual merger into Malaysia (September 1963), its split from Malaysia (9 August 1965), and subsequent relaitons with its neighbour.
