An informative account, by the chief of Newsweek's Hong Kong bureau, of the 13,000,000 overseas Chinese in southeast Asia, especially in Singapore, Malaya, Indonesia and Thailand. The author is particularly concerned with the susceptibility of these relatively wealthy and influential groups to propaganda and manipulation from Peking.
