A Peranakan Legacy

-

Peter HL Wee

New. This is probably the best comprehensive, but handy, introduction to Straits Chinese culture on the market. The book doesn't strive to be academic, trying rather to focus mainly on the day to day lifestyle enjoyed by the Peranakans and the domestic items they used. The book consists mainly of excellently produced colour pictures, but there's also just enough text on hand to give you the basics about this vibrant hybrid culture. The author is the President of the Peranakan Association of Singapore. 280 pages. Chapters include

  • Introduction: Who Were The Peranakans?,
  • Weddings,
  • Daily Life,
  • Household,
  • Leisure &
  • Festivals.
  • There is also a glossary, an index of artefacts and suggestions for further reading.

Weight 0.60 Kg. Airmail postage to Asia Pacific countries: $8, to Central Asia, Europe & the Middle East: $12 and to Africa and North & South America: $16. Surface mail worldwide $6. Postage within Malaysia is free
