The history of Java by Thomas Stamford Raffles( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1988 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781-1826) was a British civil servant and statesman best known for his founding of the city (now Republic) of Singapore. After the capture of Java by the British in 1811, Raffles was appointed Lieutenant Governor of the island, a position he held until 1815. After a two-year interlude in England, he sailed back to the East, and established the city of Singapore in 1819. These volumes, written during his governorship and first published in 1817, contain his monumental survey and history of the island state. Raffles provides a comprehensive ethnographic description of the island's society, describing its economy, trade, languages and dialects, and religious and social customs, together with a detailed history of the island, including a discussion of the introduction of Islam. These volumes provide invaluable information of the study of contemporary Javanese society and history. Volume 2 contains Raffles's historical study
Raffles and Hastings : private exchanges behind the founding of Singapore by John Sturgus Bastin( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The founding of Singapore has typically been attributed to the strategic genius of one man, Stamford Raffles. Frequently overlooked is the part played by his superior in the East India Company, the Marquess of Hastings. It was Hastings who, as Governor-General of India, made the fateful decision to establish a British trading post at the southern entrance of the Malacca Straits, and once this was executed with great daring by Raffles in early 1819, it was Hastings again who supported the retention of Singapore against opposition from all quarters. This book provides an intimate account of Singapore's founding by drawing on the personal correspondence between these two men, which they maintained separately from their official exchanges. Published here for the first time, these private letters reveal at first-hand the challenges that Raffles and Hastings faced in manoeuvring within the Dutch-dominated East Indies. Just as significantly, they reveal the complex relationship between the two men - evolving from mutual suspicion at the outset to cooperation and admiration, but nonetheless peppered throughout with backbiting, hidden agendas and the clash of personal ambitions. Historian John Bastin brings rigorous scholarship to bear on this work, at the same time presenting it in a clear, readable style that will engage specialist and general readers alike

The family of Sir Stamford Raffles by John Sturgus Bastin( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Stamford Raffles married the handsome, elegant Sophia Hull in February 1817 and a year later welcomed the arrival of his first child, Charlotte, family life looked to be full of happiness. His earlier marriage, to Olivia Mariamne Devenish, a widow nearly ten years older than him, had ended with her untimely death in Java, leaving him bereft of all that I held dear on earth . Now, settled in Bencoolen as Governor-General, he watched with satisfaction over the growth of Singapore and the increase of his young family. For all these joys, however, he was also to find that in this most wretched place, death was never far away. Drawing on a wide range of sources including new findings from birth records, marriage registers, letters and wills historian John Bastin makes an invaluable contribution to what is known about the members of Sir Stamford Raffles s family. Rigorously researched and engagingly written, this new book is a superb account of Raffles s ancestry, immediate family and closest relations and how they intertwined with each step of his celebrated career
