One of the key transformations in the modern history of Singapore and Malaysia was the process by which the Malayan Chinese came to identify more and more with Malaysia, and less with China.
This transformation unfolds in this study, through a detailed examination of the activities of Chinese civil organizations, and of the linkages between different concepts of identity and the political conditions, imperatives and processes of the time.
