It is not often that one comes across attempts to bring to life those at the very bottom of Singapore life during colonial times. Warren attempts to do this by focusing on one profession, the rickshaw coolie, thousands of whom emigrated from China to serve the wealthy in Singapore. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including coroner's reports, he recreates life on the streets for this exploited group. Good Paperback. Reprint. 391 pages with maps, tables, some black and white plates, a bibliography and an index.
