This study helps to explain Singapore's successful implementation of environmental policies since independence to achieve its present day "Garden City" image. The first three chapters of the book covers background information, the historical setting, and the work of the current government. The next six chapters are made up of case studies selected to show planning policies in more detail. The book concludes with a discussion of commentary on Singapore's landscape and a summary. Over 60 black & white illustrations. 8 color plates.
