The authors, one a professor from Stanford and the other a professor from Taiwan, amalgamated their separate strands of work on the same subject to collaborate in writing this book. Their purpose was to add an economic dimension to the study of Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, to supplement the mainly anthropological and sociological studies that had preceded this work. Their particular focus is examining why resource poor countries such as Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong have seen rapid development, when it has not been matched by resource rich countries like Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
