    Synopsis

    Dear China is the first book-length study in English of qiaopi (letters-cum-remittances, which were entered into UNESCO’s “Memory of the World” Register in 2013) and of the origins, structures, and operations of the qiaopi trade across the globe. The authors explore the characteristics and transformations of qiaopi and the qiaopi trade, demonstrating how such institutionalized and cross-national mechanisms helped sustain families separated by distance and state frontiers and contributed to modern China’s socioeconomic development and its excursions into the modern world...Details

    Synopsis

Bringing together the extensive research of a group of international scholars and taking an empirical, evidence-driven approach, this multi-authored volume sheds light on the larger significance of the qiaopi for modern China. Apart from an introductory essay by the three editors, they contributed a chapter entitled “Qiaopi and Politics in modern China and the Chinese Diaspora,” which examines qiaopi from the point of view of the Chinese and foreign states and local politics....Details

    Title

    China and the Shaping of Indonesia, 1949-1965

    2011

    Author

    Liu Hong

    Publisher

    Kyoto University Press

    Pages

    321

    ISBN

    9789971693817

    Synopsis

    China and the Shaping of Indonesia provides a meticulous account of versatile interplay between knowledge, power, ethnicity, and diplomacy in the context of Sino-Indonesian interactions between 1949 and 1965. Taking a transnational approach that views Asia as a flexible geographical and political construct, this book addresses three central questions. First, what images of China were prevalent in Indonesia, and how were narratives about China construed and reconstructed? Second, why did the China Metaphor - the projection of an imagined foreign land onto the local intellectual and political milieu - become central to Indonesians' conception of themselves and a cause for self criticism and rediscovery? Third, how was the China Metaphor incorporated into Indonesia's domestic politics and culture, and how did it affect the postcolonial transformation, the fate of the ethnic Chinese minority, and Sino-Indonesian diplomacy?

    Title

    The Cold War in Asia: The Battle for Hearts and Minds

    2011

    ISBN

    9789004175372

    Synopsis

    The Cold War stayed cold in Europe but it was hot in Asia. Its legacy lives on in the region. In none of the three dominant historiographical paradigms: orthodox, revisionist and post-revisionist, does Asia, or the rest of the Third World, figure with much significance. What happens to these narratives if we put them to the test in Asia? This volume argues that attention to what has been conventionally considered the periphery is essential to a full understanding of the global Cold War. Foregrounding Asia necessarily leads to a re-assessment of the dominant narratives. This volume also argues for a shift in focus from diplomacy and high politics alone towards research into the culture of the Cold War era and its public diplomacy.

    Title

    Dynamics of the Singapore success story : Insights by Ngiam Tong Dow

    2011

    Author

    Ngiam Tong Dow

    Publisher

    Singapore : Cengage Learning Asia

    Pages

    216

    ISBN

    9789814336079

    Synopsis

    Singapore's success story has been widely read. How and why this transformation came about, however, has seldom been publicly analysed and articulated. Very few insiders with firsthand experience have chosen to illuminate the fundamental public policies guiding Singapore's social and economic growth. Yet it is this aspect of the Singapore story that most intrigues outside observers. Based on his rich, forty-year experience as a senior Singapore civil servant, Ngiam Tong Dow manages to present a clear picture in this book of Singapore's path toward success. It is a collection of his speeches, interviews, and articles delivered and written between 2004 and 2010.

    Title

    The Chinese Overseas (4 volumes)

    2006

    Author

    Liu Hong

    Publisher

    Routledge

    Pages

    1794

    ISBN

    9780415338585

    Synopsis

    With a population of more than thirty million, the Chinese living outside of the mainland, and in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan constitute an important force in the socio-economic transformation of modern China, and they have also played a significant role in the interactions between China and the nations in which they reside. Viewed from the perspective of international migration, the Chinese Overseas are one of the most dynamic immigrant groups in the world, contributing to globalization and multi-culturalism on a huge scale.

    This impressive collection gathers together some of the most important, and previously disparate, publications in English on the various dimensions of the Chinese Diaspora. While it includes sections on the historical evolution of the Chinese communities overseas, the focus of the selection is on the later half of the twentieth century, with particular emphasis, against a backdrop of the accelerating pace of globalization, on the twenty-five years since the launch of the reform policy in China.

    Title

    Singapore Chinese Society in Transition: Business, Politics and Socio-economic Change

    2004

    Author

    Liu Hong, S. K. Wong

    Publisher

    New York: Peter Lang Publishing

    Pages

    299

    ISBN

    0820467995

    Synopsis

    This is the first comprehensive study of the dynamics, processes, mechanisms, and consequences of socio-economic and political changes in Singapore Chinese society from 1945 to 1965. By employing a wide range of primary materials that have been rarely used before, the authors have demonstrated the multi-dimensionality and complexity of the Chinese society in postwar Singapore, which was full of vitality and politically active. They argue that the combination of the internal dynamic and the changing socio-political framework shaped the nature and characteristics of the Chinese community and its fundamental role in the making of modern Singapore.
