Raffles; The Story of Singapore

by Raymond Flower

A splendid glimpse into and panoramic view of the fascinating history of the island since the metamorphosis brought about by the arrival of Raffles. Emerging from a past of hardships, poverty and suffering to rise from the tragedy of its plight to become "a glittering city-state" prominent among Asian countries, Singapore has an aura undeniably magic and awe-inspiring. Lavishly illustrated in black & white and full-color historic photographs, this magnificent volume captures some of this magic, providing the reader with a history of rare depth and precision. 374 pages. 8.5 x 12 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with black & white and full-color photographs, drawings and paintings.
