The Chinese Overseas in Malaysia in an Era of Change
Danny Wong Tze-Ken, Cheong Kee Cheok & Lee Kam Hing (eds)
Unlike in neighbouring Thailand and Indonesia, the overseas Chinese in Malaysia have not been through a forced assimilation with the majority population and so remain a distinct economic and cultural force in the country. In this collection of essays looking at Malaysian Chinese in the Great Depression and subsequent financial crises, economic ties with China in history, the case of Robert Kuok and the community's relationship with China today, the contributors highlights its resilience and continuing vital role in the country's political economy. 219 pages with an index, tables and bibliographies.
