Sharon A Carstens

New. After more than 25 years studying the Chinese Malaysian community, Carstens has drawn together various elements of her published work in this wide ranging and infomative book. All of the papers return to two principal questions - 1 - How has being Chinese shaped the responses of the community to a range of changes that have taken place since their first arrival? and 2 - How has this community's experience in Malaysia affected the way in which the community identifies itself as Chinese? 314 pages including an appendix with a media viewing questionnaire used in Carstens' research, 3 maps, 20 black and white illustrations, notes, a glossary, an index and a bibliography. Papers include -

  • From Myth to History: Yap Ah Aloy and the Heroic Past of Chinese Malaysians,
