Sinophone Malaysian Literature by Alison Groppe is in the Cambria Sinophone World Series headed by Victor Mair.

Cambria Press congratulates Professor Alison Groppe (University of Oregon) on the outstanding review of her book Sinophone Malaysian Literature: Not Made in China in the journal Southeast Asian Studies, which states that “this laudable book-length study has laid a solid foundation upon which scholars can investigate further to yield fresher insights about the uneasy making of modern Sinophone Southeast Asian subjects and their hybrid cultural identities,” further adding that “with its comprehensive coverage, focused treatment, and lucid exposition, Sinophone Malaysian Literature marks a key reference volume in the English language on the topic. Not only does it succeed in pluralizing the scholarship on the Chinese overseas and modern Chinese literature, it also urges deeper dialogue with other fields of knowledge such as human geography and Southeast Asian Studies.”

This excellent book review of Sinophone Malaysian Literature follows another in CHOICE, the premier academic library journal.
