Commemorate the Singapore Bicentennial with a special bundle of two best-selling titles: Seven Hundred Years: A History of Singapore and Travellers' Tales of Old Singapore.
About Seven Hundred Years: A History of Singapore:
Assessments of Singapore’s history invariably revolve around Sir Stamford Raffles’ arrival in 1819. Before this date – we’ve been told – “nothing very much appears to have happened in Singapore”. Pre-1819 Singapore was a sleepy, historically insignificant fishing village, little more than the “occasional resort of pirates”.
This ambitious book, co-written by four of Singapore’s foremost historians, offers an assertive re-evaluation of that view. Drawing on a multi-disciplinary range of archival, textual and cartographical records, as well as the latest archaeological discoveries, the authors cast a singular historical trajectory for Singapore over the past seven centuries, animating its history like never before.
About Travellers' Tales of Old Singapore:
In this new expanded Bicentennial edition of Travellers’ Tales, more than 80 visitors from the past provide readers of today with authentic portraits of old Singapore. These vivid first-hand accounts — in letters, diaries and memoirs — bring the past fully alive, from the founding of Singapore in 1819 to the Japanese surrender. First published in 1985, this classic is bound to entertain and inform a whole new generation of readers.
