This volume collects together and reprints four classic books written in the 1950s by Dr Leon Comber: "Chinese Ancestral Worship"; "Chinese Festivals in Malaya" (with Dorothy Lo); "Chinese Magic & Superstition in Malaya"; and "Chinese Temples in Singapore". These books on Chinese life and customs were reprinted many times but have long been out of print. Written for the layperson, the style is simple and unpretentious, yet Comber meticulously presents a veritable cornucopia of a culture still relevant and extant in modern Southeast Asia. Completely reset and attractively designed this new publication portrays the rich heritage of the overseas Chinese community's roots and practices. Those interested in the Chinese communities of Southeast Asia and their traditional practices and customs will find it a ready source of information and knowledge. Completely reset and attractively designed this new publication addresses the rich heritage of the overseas Chinese community's roots and practices, and for those reading about or visiting Southeast will find it a ready source of information and knowledge of ancient and classic Chinese culture in all its glory.
