This fascinating study looks at the way Penang Chinese have adapted the religious beliefs and practices of their ancestors in China to help them cope with, firstly, British colonialism and now the modern Malaysian nation state.

Contents include 1 - The Localisation of Chinese Society in Penang, 2 - "A Very Irreligious but Most Superstitious People": Trust Tolerance and Control in the Straits Settlements 1786-1857, 3 - Belonging and Boundaries: European Freemasons and Chinese Sworn Brotherhoods, 4 - Rites of Belonging: Initiation into the Chinese Sworn Brotherhoods, 5 - Rights of Belonging: Citizenship and Ethnic Nationalism, 6 - Time, Space and Social Memory, 7 - the Politics of Religious Revitalisation: The Hungry Ghosts Festival, 8 - Performing Magical Power: The Nine Emperor Gods Festival, a Glossary of Chinese terms used in the book and an extensive bibliography.
