From the Preface: "The major focus of the book is the contemporary group-life of the Chinese [in Thailand], their community structure, principal institutions and interests. The account carries the Chinese from their origins in China and subsequent emigration, to their possible role today vis-a-vis Communist China. An analysis is made of the developments occurring in familial, educational, economic, religious, political, and other institutional aspects of overseas Chinese life."
