Riassunto: A City Through Seven Centuries Is Based On Research Done In Collaboration With The National Museum's Curators, Seeks To Invigorate Links To Singapore's Past By Weaving A Cohesive Narrative Out Of Fragments Of Eyewitness Accounts And Correspondence.
Dal risvolto interno:
Singapore was not always the orderly and succesful city-state that it appears to be now. Over the last seven centuries, the island has undergone several changes of identity. In this entertaining and wide-ranging account, drawn from research undertaken in collaboration with the National Museum of Singapore, Mark R. Frost and Yu-Mei Balasingamchow present Singapore's mercurial life-story as experienced by the people who participated in it. Singapore: A Biography brings together a Ming-dynasty travelogue, 19th-century memoirs and correspondence, modern oral histories and even radio and television broadcasts to reconnect a modern audience with the Singapore story.
While famous names from Singapore's past take their place, this new story also introduces a cast of lesser known, though no less compelling, historical personalities - from dissenting poets and radical ideologues, to patriotic factory workers and early feminists. The portrait of Singapore that emerges is dashing, lively and multi-layered, and it offers fresh insight into the ruptures and continuities that have made Singaporeans and their nation what they are today.
