10 men. 10 years. They represent a crucial period where critical decisions and actions were made that helped shape the destiny of Singapore to this day. This catalogue complements and documents the travelling exhibition of the same title, which was launched on 28 July 2007, and records the many poignant stories on the contributions by the First Cabinet and Singapore's first decade of nation building. The catalogue is organised thematically into 5 parts - starting with a brief historical overview on key political milestones followed by four broad themes covering foreign relations and defence, economic development, public health and social harmony. Box stories such as on Constitution of Singapore, State Symbols, Water Supply, Family Planning Policy and Proclamation of Singapore give added interest. The lessons from these 10 years will inspire us in years to come and better appreciate where Singapore stands today.
Catalogue is in English and Chinese language.
Retail price $26.75. Special discount price to schools at $16.05. All prices include GST.
