A descriptively annotated, multidisciplinary, cross-referenced and extensively indexed guide to 2,395 dissertations that are concerned either in whole or in part with Hong Kong and with Hong Kong Chinese students and emigres throughout the world. This meticulously prepared reference work encompasses studies not only in every major discipline of the humanities, the social sciences and the behavioural sciences, but also in education, law, medicine, architecture, the natural sciences, and engineering that have been accepted by 415 universities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European continent, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan. It also indicates the availability of copies of each dissertation, contains an appendix of theses dating from 1998 and 1999, and presents an excellent overview of selected research trends about Hong Kong throughout the twentieth century. This definitive bibliography is designed to serve scholars, students, librarians and the general public as a convenient, single point of access to a wealth of significant but widely scattered published and unpublished information.
