Seven hundred years : a history of Singapore

“This book offers a complete rewrite of Singapore: A 700-Year History – From Early Emporium to World City, published exactly ten years ago. The original authors, now joined by Peter Borschberg, felt that the occasion of the Bicentennial Commemoration warranted a reminder that Singapore has a history pre-dating the arrival of Stamford Raffles by some five centuries. This volume presents a possible approach to rethinking the significance of Raffles’ establishment of a British station on Singapore”—Preface.
