The first of the Asian 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? 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. For those seeking the composite image of what it means to be a Chinese, this book holds up many intriguing mirrors. This is a co-publication with Times Academic Press
