Abstract

Researching the Fragments ranges across a broad spectrum of countries, disciplinary approaches and historical periods, from the history of Chinese Australians in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and Vietnamese Australians in the present, to French women in colonial Vietnam, religious leaders in the Philippines in the 1500s, Japanese and Chinese prostitutes in Singapore, Malaysia and Australia, matriarchal communities on the Sino-Tibetan border, women writing verse for each other in secret scripts in late imperial China, contemporary political leaders in the Philippines, female heroes of classical Malay literature, and more. The editors are to be congratulated for producing such a coherent and interesting book out of such a wide range of material.
