John Bastin

Bastin, arguably the world's leading expert on Stamford Raffles, has in this book assembled a collection of previously unpublished letters between Raffles and Warren Hastings, his superior, two of the main protagonists in the establishment of a British East India base in Singapore. The two did not completely trust each other, but against criticism at home and threats from the Dutch dominance of the area, they co-operated to establish what was to become the cornerstone of the British presence in Southeast Asia. New Soft cover. First Edition. 235 pages with an index and many illustrations.
