Straits Chinese Society

by

John R. Clammer

Clammer in his introduction states that he believes amidst the rich cultural and ethnic diversity that exists in Southeast Asia a strong case could be made for the culture of the Straits Chinese as being the most interesting. In this work he demonstrates how the culture is not just a mish mash of what's been assimilated from Chinese, European and Malay traditions, but something that transcends all of its parts to make it special. 168 pages whose contents include -

  • 9 - Bibliographical essay.
