This is the first book to bring together nine Asian English writers of Chinese descent from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong: Catherine Lim, Christine Lim, Ee Tiang Hong, Kee Thuan Chye, Lee Kok Liang, Shirley Lim, Timothy Mo, Xu Xi and Agnes Lam. It discusses how the withdrawal of colonial power and the implementation of nation-building policies impact race/ethnicity, class and language in these former British colonies. The last chapters take a special look at postcolonialism and gender politics, and explore how Chinese women, at home or abroad, defy the Orientalist gaze and the native patriarchy.
