For several decades, the city-state of Singapore has been an international anomaly, combining an advanced, open economy with restrictions on civil liberties and press freedom. Freedom from the Press analyses the republic’s media system, showing how it has been structured ”like the rest of the political framework” to provide maximum freedom of manœuvre for the People's Action Party (PAP) government.

Book Description UNIV OF HAWAII PR, Singapore, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. For decades, the city-state of Singapore has been an international anomaly, combining an advanced and open economy with reduced civil liberties and press freedom. The book analyses the country s media system, showing how it has been structured - like the rest of the political framework - to provide maximum freedom of manoeuvre for the People s Action Party (PAP) government. Going beyond critique, the author explains how the PAP s freedom from the press model has achieved its extraordinary resilience and stability. One key factor was the PAP s early recognition that capitalism and the profit motive could be harnessed as a way to tame journalism. Second, the PAP exercised strategic self-restraint in the use of force, progressively turning to subtler means of control that were less prone to backfire on the state. Third, unlike many authoritarian regimes, the PAP remained open to ideas and change and occasional failure, this helped the PAP to consolidate its authoritarian form of electoral democracy. This volume is essential reading for those who are interested in Singapore s media and political system.Singapore s unique place on the world map of press freedom and democracy makes the book an important contribution to the comparative study of journalism and politics.
