Abstract: Chinese secret societies in Singapore & Malyasia are considered legitimate extensions of the China Triad Society, a relationship mystified by ideology. Local Chinese secret societies enjoyed a long period of legal status before they were outlawed in 1890. Since this time, these societies, except for some de facto Triad subgroups, have been functioning independently of the Triad. It is concluded that local Chinese secret societies, especially those in the modern era, are a more appropriate topic in criminology than in the study of Chinese social organizations. 1 Chart, Modified AA.
