Product Description

Synopsis

The first of the Asian Social Science Series, this book explores the question: Who are the Chinese in Thailand? Are they 'assimilated Thais' or are they 'Chinese' living in Thailand? Does their being 'in' Thailand make them 'of' Thailand? Anthropologists and sociologists have debated these issues for decades. Through a collection of authoritative essays, this book explores how the Chinese of Thailand constantly alternate their positions within the fabric of the Thai society. It captures the multiple faces of identity within a web of interlocking forces and influences such as religion, class, politics, gender and generation. For those seeking the composite image of what it means to be a Chinese, this book holds up many intriguing mirrors.
