Singapore housing has often been held up as a success story, especially the development of its public housing. This book aims to document the research and publication on this aspect of Singapore's development. Covering the periods prior to and after 1960, the annotated bibliography brings together in one volume both published and unpublished works including books, journal articles, academic exercises, theses and dissertations.

The annotated bibliography will be a useful reference source for students and researchers interested in the housing of Singapore. Besides consolidating knowledge of the research which has been done, a reading of the annotated bibliography will help scholars and researchers to identify areas that still needs to be studied. It will serve as an important starting point and source of information about housing in Singapore. It is a document that is of practical as well as theoretical interest to local and international researchers in the field of housing.
