Southeast Asian personalities of Chinese Descent
Leo Suryadinata (ed)
New. For several centuries emigrants from China have been at the centre of trade in Southeast Asia. This volume, with nearly 200 contributors, assembles together pithy biographies of hundreds of the principal personalities who have contributed to trade and many other aspects of life in their new homes during the last two centuries. The main volume of 1397 pages lists the subjects in alphabetical order, while the companion volume of 154 pages contains four indices where the subjects are listed by name, gender, country and category, i.e. profession or occupation. There is a final index of the contributors linked to the biographies for which they were responsible. Each biography contains a reference list, where available.
