Kampung Tempe: Voices from a Malay Village


 Yahaya Sanusi & Hidayah Amin

This book is emblematic of the way Singapore has changed in the course of the last century. A virtually uninhabitable piece of land, marshland and infested with mosquitoes, was settled by a Javanese community at the beginning of the 20th century and turned into reasonably productive agricultural land. The village was eventually replaced to become a prime residential area, The only remnant is a small mosque. The authors were able to find some of the displaced former inhabitants and, through their voices, reconstruct what village life was like before the arrival of the bulldozer. New Hardback. First Edition. 288 pages with maps, black and white and colour photographs and colour illustrations, a bibliography and an index.
