About This Book

An exhibition celebrating Zheng He was held at the new headquarters of the National Library of Singapore from July 2005 to February 2006. It was organised to mark the occasion of the Library's move into new premises, and last year being the 600th anniversary of Zheng He's first voyage, the exhibition also recognised the parallel between the importance of Zheng He's maritime legacy and the importance of maritime trade to Singapore. This book was published to accompany the exhibition. Attractively designed, it is generously illustrated with maps, drawings and photographs. The illuminating text provides an overview of the early history of Chinese maritime trade before going on to explore the life and times of Zheng He and the countries he had sojourned to in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Africa. Bilingual in English and Chinese.
