This book uses a multifaceted approach to unravel the forces that helped to transform the communities in the past, Containing 17 papers written within a span of six and a half years, from 2000 to 2006, the book focuses on the social, economic and political aspects of these communities, with special emphasis on the Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore."--Jacket.
