The Chinese of Sarawak :
A Study of Social Structure
Following the ceding of Sarawak by the Brooke family to the British Government at the end of World War II, a group of anthropologists were employed by the Government to produce studies on the main ethnic groups in the state. The author's original remit was to study Chinese clan associations, but he extended it to cover Chinese society generally. The result is a fascinating study of how an immigrant community copes and thrives in their new home country. The timing of the study, within three years of the war, was particularly relevant not only because of the advent of Communism in China but also because the community was still licking its wounds after a miserable time during the Japanese occupation. 91 pages.
