Singapore Swing PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Singapore Swing free pdf For generations of Britons, Singapore was the international crossroads of the Empire, the ultimate colonial posting, the stimulus for writers such as Joseph Conrad, Somerset Maugham or Noel Coward. Can today's high-tech 24-hour city with its gleaming skyscrapers and high standard of living provide a similar kind of inspiration to a visitor? John Malathronas penetrates the Oriental psyche and discovers the hustle among the stuffiness, the thrill behind the Confucian ethic and, ultimately, the joie de vivre in what has been unjustly dismissed as 'a shopping mall with UN representation'. Still more importantly, during his quest, he realises that this overcrowded, multicultural, multifaith city-state can teach us a lesson about living together in harmony and with mutual respect.
