Publisher Description

Sir Stamford Raffles was a British colonial trader who, in 1819, founded the island city-state of Singapore. Today, Singapore is a world alpha city ranked alongside London, New York, and Tokyo. In this intriguing book - part history, part travelogue - the author revisits the places that were important in the life of Raffles and evaluates his legacy, both good and bad, in present-day Singapore. Previously published by Penguin, this is a fully updated edition.
