Singapore Chronicles: PRE-COLONIAL SINGAPORE
SINGAPORE CHRONICLES
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press are jointly launching the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015. This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject. Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as an historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.

PRE-COLONIAL SINGAPORE

The conventional and dominant view of Singapore’s history is that it began with Stamford Raffles’ arrival on the island in January 1819, and that nothing of significance, if at all anything, happened on this island before that. This book attempts a re-examination of the existing evidence in conjunction with excavated archaeological evidence and Portuguese and Dutch archival records to argue that there were significant developments on and around the island. They shaped Singapore’s historical development after 1819 and could alter our understanding of what Singapore is about in history.
