Chinese Minority in a Malay State: The Case of Terengganu in Malaysia
In a state that is overwhelmingly Malay, the Chinese minority in Terengganu seems to effortlessly adapt and blend in with the local community. In actual fact, this situation has made the Chinese more conscious of maintaining their Chinese identity. This has subsequently resulted in an enriched and diversified culture and lifestyle, which is constantly evolving. A sequel to the studies done on Chinese localization as well as cultural change in identity in Melaka and Kelantan, this book provides comprehensive information on the Chinese in this particular state especially on the more locallized Chinese known as the Peranakan-type Chinese.
