0 Reviews
The evolution of Hong Kong, as a British colony and now a Special Administrative Region at China's door step, has always been inextricably intertwined with the situation in China. This relationship is examined through various perspectives in this volume. There are new insights on such topics as Hong Kong's society and religion, the development of the New Territories, the influence of the Chinese elite, the role of the colony during critical times in China's history, and business interactions between the two trading partners. This collection should appeal to readers interested in the society, politics and economy of Hong Kong.
