Singapore is a land of immigrants. Although the Chinese are by far the largest ethnic group, it is more of a salad bowl than a melting pot-although a common identity has emerged since independence in 1965. With no natural resources, the newly independent state invested in education and trade, and today this sleek, air-conditioned nation is a global financial centre that makes much of the West seem third-rate. Singaporeans are hardworking, goal-oriented individuals-modern individuals who love coloUr, shopping, and are proud of being high-maintenance and competitive. Yet behind this consumerist facade is a deep respect for family and hierarchy, political passivity, and a fear of losing face. Culture Smart! Singapore describes how locals interact with each other and with outsiders, and it tells travelers what to expect and how to behave.
