This interdisciplinary collection of essays offers a window onto the overseas Indian and Chinese communities in Asia and across the globe. Contributors discuss the interactive role of the cultural and religious "other", the diasporic absorption of local beliefs and customs, and the practical business networks and operational mechanisms unique to these communities. Growing out of an international workshop organized by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore and the Centre of Asian Studies at the Uniiversity of Hong Kong, this volume explores materials, cultural and imaginative features of the immigrant communities and brings together these two important communities within a comparative framework.
