Chinese In Southeast Asia And Beyond, The: Socioeconomic And Political Dimensions
by Yen Ching-Hwang
About This Book
The Chinese in Southeast Asia, with their growing economic clout, have been attracting attention from politicians, scholars and observers in recent decades. Furthermore, the rise of China as a global economic power and its profound influence over Southeast Asia has cast a spotlight on the role of Southeast Asian Chinese in the region’s economic relations with China.
The Southeast Asian Chinese as an economic force and their growing importance with China are, to a certain extent, determined by the nature and development of their communities. This book uses a multifaceted approach to examine 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. The book is divided into two major parts - the first deals with the Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore and the second with the Chinese in the region and beyond.
