“When people are learning to accept the new concept of nation, the impact of globalization, especially with China being an influential factor again, will compel ethnic Chinese to look beyond national borders and even return to cultural identification. How will the Chinese in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia relate culturally to China? How will the Chinese conduct cultural interaction among each other in Southeast Asia?” These are the issues covered by the publication which is available in English (ISBN 981-05-6820-7) and Chinese (ISBN 981-05-6818-5).
