About This Book

How do class, ethnicity, gender, and politics interact? In what ways do they constitute everyday life among ethnic minorities? Donald M. Nonini draws on three decades of research in the region of Penang state in northern West Malaysia, mainly in the city of Bukit Mertajam, to provide an ethnographic and historical account of the cultural politics of class conflict and state formation among Malaysians of Chinese descent.
