I'm Cherian George, and I wrote a book of essays about why Singapore needs to grow up.
Thanks to everyone who contributed questions. It's been fun!
About me: I am a Singaporean professor of media studies based at a university in Hong Kong. I’ve been writing about politics and media for 30 years, first as a Straits Times journalist and then as an academic. I wrote my latest book, ‘Singapore, Incomplete’, because I feel something's missing in our national development.
We are a middle-aged country with a mature economy – but the political system still treats us like children. As the government prepares to transition to a fourth-generation leadership, my essays look at the unfinished business of political liberalisation and multicultural integration. I cover topics like censorship and fear, race and religion, elections and voting, and prospects for political reform. Whether you’ve already read the book or you’re waiting for the movie, I welcome you to ask me anything.
