Overview

Hegemonies Compared: State Formation and Chinese School Politics in Postwar Singapore and Hong Kong / Edition 1

This book explores the impact of cultural identity, the internal configurations of the educational field, and the struggles both inside and outside the educational systems of post-World War II Singapore and Hong Kong. By comparing the school politics of these two nations, Wong generates a theory that illuminates connections between state formation, education, and hegemony in countries with dissimilar cultural makeups.
