: The schoolbook excerpt deals with population planning in Singapore during the 1960s and 1970s. After having obtained its independence a worry about the growth of the population prevailed which was answered with a family policy which concentrated mainly on creating an incentive for families to have small families. However, in the following sentence it says that the Singaporeans now (in the year 1988) are being encouraged to have more children again.
: Der Schulbuchauszug behandelt die Bevölkerungsplanung in Singapur in den 1960er und 1970er Jahren. Nach der Unabhängigkeit des Landes habe eine Besorgnis über das Bevölkerungswachstum vorgeherrscht, der durch eine Familienpolitik entgegnet wurde, die sich vor allem darauf konzentrierte, Anreize für die Menschen zu schaffen, damit sie sich für kleinere Familien entschieden. Im abschließenden Satz heißt es allerdings, dass die Singapurer nun (im Jahr 1988) dazu ermutigt würden, wieder mehr Kinder zu bekommen.
Abstract textbook: The schoolbook offers an intensive course in geography. According to the authors, the authors strongly based their approach on the Cambridge Revised Geography Syllabus. In addition to this book, there are also workbooks designed for the practise of the foundations taught in this book. In this book, a model of geography oriented towards the environment is implemented. In this respect, the relationship between man and the environment is emphasised, in other words the influence, which man has on the environment and vice versa.
