Studying Singapore Before 1800
Edited by Kwa Chong Guan, Peter Borschberg
Jan 2019 600pp
9789814722742 Paperback
Historians rely on Singapore's strategic position to explain its great success as a royal trading port in the 14th century, and as a British colony after 1819. What, then, accounts for the many centuries when it seemed not to thrive? This volume collects studies about Singapore before 1800, bringing together different efforts across the 20th century at reconstructing Singapore's 'missing years'.

2018 520pp
9789814722629 Hardback
For forty-four months during World War II, the Japanese occupied Singapore, setting out to drastically change life on the island. As part of the occupation, the Japanese produced detailed reports on the economy. The reports were notoriously difficult to read, and so this exceptional translation by Gregg Huff and Shinobu Majima is a true linguistic accomplishment.
