About This Book

About 80 per cent of the ethnic Chinese outside China (also known as the "Chinese overseas") live in Southeast Asia. This book examines that community in the context of both national and international dimensions. It first discusses the ethnic Chinese and China, addressing the issues of migration, nationality, business success and ethnic conflict; second, Chinese cultural adaptation and various identities; and third, case studies of the Chinese in Indonesia, external actors, the state, and ethnic Chinese politics. Professor Suryadinata has written extensively on the subject of the Chinese overseas. The essays in this book were written between 1987 and 2005, and have previously been published in other books and journals.
