Self-censorship: Singapore's Shame

Self-Censorship: Singapore’s Shame available online for free download

Self-Censorship: Singapore’s Shame was written in 1999 and released in the same year. Its publication marked the founding of Think Centre and thrust its author, James Gomez, onto Singapore’s political landscape. The book examines the culture of self-censorship in the city-state and explains why this practice leads to the censorship of others. The action of the author to independently publish, launch and publicise the book was considered in Singapore as “sensitive” and therefore attracted the attention of political observers. The use of the internet by the author, and later by his supporters, challenged Singapore’s conservative political culture and the government’s licensing laws on public activities. This book is now fully available online and for free download. – From James Gomez’s Monash University page here
