: Singapore Eurasians: Memories and Hopes was originally published in 1992, and was a historical record of Eurasians in Singapore, sharing on the history, culture, food and sports, as well as prominent Eurasians. The original book is currently out of print but still in demand. Fully revised and updated since its publication 1992, this new edition tells how the Eurasian Association (EA) as a Self-Help Group since 1994, has been helping the less fortunate through its education and welfare programmes, and how, as an added role, the EA has been preserving and sharing the Eurasian culture for future generations. This book is the definitive record of Eurasian history and heritage in Singapore. Readers will come to know the definition of a Eurasian, and the community's mixed European and Asian ancestry, which makes it adaptable in various cultures. It will provide a better understanding of one of Singapore's earliest settlers, who were here since the 1500s and in the early years of growth of Singapore during the time of Sir Stamford Raffles. The book is also a reflection of contemporary Eurasian hopes for the future. This cultural book gives insight into one of Singapore's minority communities, though small, yet playing a big part in nation-building. It serves to educate the younger generation of Eurasians about their roots, and is also a useful resource for people of other ethnicities to learn more about the Eurasian community and better understand its traditions, contributing to our continued multi-racial harmony.
