Summary: "This interdisciplinary collection of essays offers a window onto the overseas Indian and Chinese communities in Asia. Contributors discuss the interactive role of the cultural and religious 'other', the diasporic absorption of local beliefs and customs, and the practical business networks and operational mechanisms unique to these communities.
