Item description for Voluntary Organizations in the Chinese Diaspora by Khun Eng Kuah-pearce...
The contributors to this book argue that Chinese voluntary organizations continue to play a significant role in both established and new Chinese communities in the Diaspora because of their ability to transform their organizational structure and functions, at the same time reinventing their own images to suit their co-ethnic community and the wider polity.
The essays cover traditional Chinese voluntary organizations from Asia to Australia, North America and Europe, examining not only their activities in established Chinese communities such as Singapore and Malaysia, but also in the new emerging Chinese communities in Canada and Eastern Europe.
