Hack, Karl (2010). The Malayan trajectory in Singapore's history. In: Hack, Karl; Margolin, Jean-Louis and Delaye, Karine eds. Singapore from Temasek to the 21st Century. Singapore: National University of Singapire Press, pp. 243–291.



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.
