Item description for Chinese Adaptation and Diversity: Essays on Society and Literature in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore by Leo Suryadinata...
The essays in this book originate from a joint project between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) on the theme of Chinese emigration and settlement, with reference to the process of adaptation. The papers here feature the Chinese immigrants in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore--the problems they faced in the Western colonies; their social, cultural and economic activities; and their attempts to adjust to the new environment especially after these colonies became independent. The process of change and adaptation is reflected in their communities and their literature.
