About This Book

Softback and rewritten 2010 edition of the 2003 account of the Chinese business landscape in Kedah/Penang in the economically changing period 1882-1941. Chinese were of course a minority in the area situated between the two major political entities of Siam and the British Straits Settlements. This careful study shows how wide-reaching, complex, and pragmatic networks of family, business, lineage and obligation rather than territorial, political or ethnic convention enabled Chinese business achievement. Many other interesting issues are explored. With bibliography, glossary, and index.
