About this product
- DescriptionHow did imported techlogy contribute to the development of the colony of Singapore? Who were the main agents of change in this process? Was there extensive transfer and diffusion of Western science and techlogy into the port-city? How did the people respond to change? Examining areas such as shipping, port development, telegraphs and wireless, urban water supply and sewage disposal, ecomic botany, electrification, food production and retailing, science and technical education, and health, this book documents the role of techlogy and, to a smaller extent, science, in the transformation of colonial Singapore before 1940. In doing so, this book hopes to provide a new dimension to the historiography of Singapore from a science, techlogy and society perspective.
