When Britain and China negotiated the future of Hong Kong in the early 1980s, their primary concern was about maintaining the status quo. The rise of China in the last thirty years, however, has reshaped the Beijing-Hong Kong dynamic as new tensions and divisions have emerged. Thus, post-1997 Hong Kong is a case about a global city・s democratic transition within an authoritarian state.

The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary Hong Kong introduces readers to these key social, economic, and political developments. Bringing together the work of leading researchers in the field, it focuses on the process of transition from a British colony to a Special Administrative Region under China・s sovereign rule. Organized thematically, the sections covered include:

  • .One Country, Two Systems・ in practice
  • Governance in post-colonial Hong Kong
  • Social mobilization
  • The changing social fabric of Hong Kong society
  • Socio-economic development and regional integration
  • The future of Hong Kong.

This book provides a thorough introduction to Hong Kong today. As such, it will be invaluable to students and scholars of Hong Kong・s politics, culture and society. It will also be of interest to those studying Chinese political development and the impact of China・s rise more generally.
