Singapore & The Silk Road of the Sea, 1300-1800
John N Miksic
Until recently the prevailing historical view has been that Stamford Raffles 'founded' Singapore. Miksic brings together 25 years of archaeological research to show that Singapore, formerly known as Temasik, was a key point on trade routes from the 14th century onwards. The 491 page work looks first at the historical background, then at the archaeological background and finally at Singapore's position in its regional context. With numerous black and white photographs, maps, tables, figures, a bibliography and an index.
