The authors, a group of respected historians, seek to show that Singapore was far from a 'sleepy fishing village' before the arrival of Stamford Raffles, but was instead a thriving port which was of significance from at least the 14th century onwards. They then follow the island's history through British and Japanese times, independence and separation right up to its place as a 'Global City' today. Very Good Paperback. First Edition. 220 pages with an index and several black and white and colour illustrations.
