Based on three decades of anthropological field research, CHINESE TRADERS in a PHILIPPINE TOWN addresses two aspects of a provincial town in the Philippines. First, it examines the town's Chinese trade community as composed of individuals and families who follow commercial ends with varying degrees of success by means of a wide range of competitive tactics. Second, it describes changes the town has experienced during recent decades and how these have been to a large degree the result of long-term, commercial strategies followed by substantial Chinese entrepreneurs.

NORBERT DANNHAEUSER received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and is Professor of Anthropology at Texas A&M University. Much of his research effort during the past three decades has gone into the ethnographic study medium-range towns in developing settings. He has done fieldwork in India, Germany, and repeatedly in the Philippines, primarily in Dagupan City. In addition to numerous articles in scholarly journals, he is the author of Contemporary Trade Strategies in the Philippines and of Two Towns in Germany. He is the senior-editor of the annual book series, Research in Economic Anthropology.
