In these 14 papers perspectives of international scholars are applied to Singapore's history. They explore the ways in which since the 14th century Singapore has maintained both singularity and centrality as a crossroads and trading node, until its present emergence as a global city. The 4 papers in Part 1 consider the different ways of looking at Singapore's history. Part 2 looks at selected periods or events which enabled the city to survive and function as a major urban centre. With illustrations, reading lists, bibliography, maps, and index. 458pp. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 050115

Book by Karl Hack

Reseña del editor:

In this volume, a group of international scholars examines the history of Singapore as a series of discontinuous and varied attempts by a shifting array of local and foreign elites to optimize advantages arising from the island's strategic location and overcome its lack of natural resources. Part I sets the scene by considering different ways of looking at the island's long-term history and evaluating Singapore as a global city. Part II provides a series of snapshots of Singapore between 14th and 21st centuries, positioning the island as a major node in regional and world history, and evaluating the local political and social structures that have underpinned the city's ability to function as a major urban centre and ensured its long-term survival.
