While the importance of ethnic Chinese communities in the economies of Southeast Asia is a widely studied subject, their chosen forms of political expression are less well documented. Widely affiliated "umbrella" organizations constituted the main representative bodies for Chinese interests during colonial eras, but very few communities have continued to rely on such organizations to the present day.

Formed to mediate between the Chinese community and the local governing body, the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry has been the focus of ethnic Chinese economic and political power in the Philippines since the 1950s. Unlike other organizations, its actions have often been influenced by its relations with the government of the Philippines, the People's Republic of China, and Taiwan.

In Chinese Big Business in the Philippines, the Federation is a platform for the broader issues of leadership and the adaptability of business-based political organizations in general. In the Philippine context, challenges to the survival of the Federation have arisen from the dynamism of local politics, the increasing social integration of the ethnic Chinese community and economic globalization. As the Chinese become increasingly integrated into Philippine society, younger generations are forming rival organizations with political and social agendas, claiming a broader base of support in the community outside the economic elite. The author critically assesses the viability of the leaders of Chinese big business in the Philippines to represent a constituency that is becoming increasingly politically articulate and socially diverse.
