Abstract: This thesis is an exploration of Singapore Malay middle class. It focuses on the emergence and visibility of middle class in relation to state-led industrialisation and the restructuring of the education system. In doing so, this thesis has attempted to fill in the gap in studies on Malay middle class in Singapore. Findings from in-depth interviews indicate that middle class emply tangible (socio-economic indicators) as well as intangible (values and aspiration) markes in the self-evaluation of their class position. They also show that middle class carve out their indentity vis a vis other members of the community in relation to values, mentality and/or mindsets, and attitudes. This study will also highlight the perceived role and contributions middle class have to the societies. Since middle class is not a homogenous group, findings were expressed and manifested in various ways.
