This pioneering work examines Japan's economic activities in
Singapore from 1870 to 1965. Drawing upon a wide range of published
and unpublished sources, the authors shed new light on issues such
as: * prostitution * foreign trade by Kobe's overseas Chinese *
fishermen in the inter-war period * Japanese economic activities
during the Pacific War * Japanese involvement in Singapore's
post-war industrialisation plan * the Lee Kuan Yew regimes policy
towards Japan * the 1960s Japanese investment boom This important
work challenges commonly-held views on Japan's economic advance
into Southeast Asia in general and Singapore in particular.
