Sojourners and Settlers: Histories of Southeast Asia and the Chinese

by

Sojourners and Settlers: Histories of Southeast Asia and the Chinese Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Only recently has the role of Chinese minorities at the forefront of Southeast Asia's rapid economic growth attracted world attention. Yet interactions between Chinese and Southeast Asians are longstanding and intense, reaching back a thousand years and making it difficult, if not specious, to attempt to disentangle what is Chinese and what is indigenous in much of Southeast Asian culture. Sojourners and Settlers, now back in print, written by some of the most distinguished specialists in the field, demonstrates the depth of that relationship.

Book News Annotation:

Originally published in 1996 (Allen & Unwin), this work demonstrates the range of Chinese interactions with Southeast Asian societies. It examines ethnic, national, and cultural identities, migration patterns and demographics, and economic issues, with chapters on creolized Chinese societies in Southeast Asia, modern Thai social formations and Chinese historical romance, letters from an ocean Hang merchant to the Dutch authorities in Batavia (1803-09), and ancestral halls, funeral associations, and attempts at resinicization in 19th-century Netherlands India. B&w historical illustrations are included. Reid is professor and director of the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of California.
