Abstract: Singapore is an immigrant society. Out of the total population, 76% is Chinese. Among the Chinese immigrants, 45% are Hokkien. Being the most prominent dialect group, the Hokkien left a significant influence to the Chinese society. This dissertation focuses on Singapore Hokkien community between the time periods 1945-1965. This was a crucial period in Singapore history where changes took place in different aspects of the society. It was also a period of transition for the Chinese society in Singapore. The areas of discussion include societal, cultural and economical activities of the Hokkiens. To date, there is no literature which looked at Hokkien community (1945-1965) in depth, this dissertation aims to fill the gap and bring to lights the contributions made by this prominent dialect group. Last but not least, this dissertation hopes to play its part in the development of the research of Singapore Chinese society.
