Hegemonies Compared: State Formation and Chinese School Politics in Postwar Singapore and Hong Kong (Reference Books in International Education) by Ting-Hong Wong

Combining theoretical insights from Antonio Gramsci, Basil Berstein, Bob Jessop, and Michael Apple, this book contrasts the interrelationship between state formation and Chinese school politics in post-WWII Singapore and Hong Kong. The book explores the impacts of cultural identity, the internal configurations of the educational fields, and the struggles both outside and inside the educational systems on the process of state formations. By comparing Chinese school politics in Singapore and Hong Kong, one mono-racial and another multi-racial, Wong generates a theory that explains diverse connections between state formation and school education and various forms of state hegemony under dissimilar contexts of racial politics.
