|Title:||Landscape modernisation : land use change in the Jurong Industrial Area||Authors:||Yap, Adriel Lian Ho.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering||Issue Date:||1999||Abstract:||This thesis examines how economic development has moulded the landscape of Singapore, with particular reference to the Jurong Industrial Area where land (re)development since 1960 is a direct result of economic policy decisions made by the People's Action Party government. The PAP, formed by a strategic alliance of middle-class English-educated professionals with a group of leftist activists, was elected into government in 1959. However a divergence in political and economic philosophy led to a breakdown of the alliance in the early 1960s. The PAP's pro-capitalist approach prevailed and paved the way for an export-led economy.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/14080||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
