      Raffles and the British Invasion of Java, by Tim Hannigan, is a well researched and well-written book. Tim Hannigan presents Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles (6 July – 5 July ) in a way he has rarely been seen; not as a liberal paragon, but as a flawed, overly-ambitious man/5(41).

But, here at your site, there is at last a true monument and celebration to the stories. Thank you once-again.
