Nature's Colony: Empire, Nation and Environment in the Singapore Botanic Gardens
Timothy P Barnard
Barnard has produced in this book an authoritative history of Singapore's first World Heritage site, its Botanic Gardens. Although visitors appreciate the gardens as a restful retreat in the midst of a busy city, this book also details the institution's role as a place of scientific research and as a testing ground for planting tropical crops and the struggles both within and the pressures from without to define its role. 287 pages.
