Almost every year history undergraduates at the honours level at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have been given the option to undertake research and write a thesis on their choice of topic in their fourth year before graduation. This is part of their professional training as historians. The Society is happy to publish this volume containing the best history graduation essays for the 2008/2009 academic year. The essays, selected and edited for publication under the Society's Mubin Sheppard Memorial Fund, demonstrate each student's competence and ability to apply research methods, adopt critical perspectives and approaches and present an original interpretation and analysis of issues and problems in Malaysian and Singapore history.
