Studying Singapore Before 1800

---

Kwa Chong Guan & Peter Borschberg (eds)


Most histories of Singapore begin with the establishing of a British East India Company base there in 1817. It is known that the island was important as a trading port five hundred years before that, but what happened in the intervening years? In this volume the editors gather together a range of recent studies that seek to piece together the island's missing history, which was somewhat more significant than implied by John Crawfurd, who described Singapore as 'only the occasional resort of pirates' before the British arrival.
