The authors, drawing on research undertaken in collaboration with the National Museum of Singapore, have woven together ancient chronicles, eyewitness accounts, oral histories and even modern radio and television broadcasts to create a vivid and compelling narrative that brings the past back to life. Encounter violent unrest on the city’s streets, the jostling down its corridors of power, the high life of its elites, and the daily struggles of existence beyond the city’s “five-foot” ways. Grounded in scholarship yet fired by the imagination, this book reveals the Singapore story to have been as rich, diverse and multilayered as the city-state is prosperous and successful today.
