520    This book details the process of urban planning in 
       Singapore by tracing its early growth on the banks of the 
       Singapore River to its present structure. It focuses on 
       the redevelopment of the old city centre, whose 
       metamorphosis is a microcosm of the overall transformation
       of the city-state. Through a historical and descriptive 
       analysis of changes in economic activity and population, 
       the resulting spatial aspects, and the role of the 
       government, the book evaluates the forces that have shaped
       the Central Area. Of special interest is the extraordinary
       role played by the government as both planner and 
       entrepreneur. A main thrust of the book is the idea that 
       the urban morphology of today is largely the result of 
       government planning, intervention, and entrepreneurship. 
       The two land-use components which are increasingly 
       dominant are shops and offices. Particular emphasis is 
       given therefore to the changes in retailing and services 
       activities.
