This comprehensive book provides a multi-dimensional analysis of Hong Kong’s development, and her political, socio-economic and cultural relations with China. It covers events leading up to 1997 and the post-1997 environment, and offers important insights into the issues that arise now Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China.

This volume is divided into three sections which focus on various aspects of Hong Kong’s reintegration with China. The first section examines the political situation in Hong Kong before and after 1997. Broad questions of the social and economic interactions between Hong Kong and China are discussed in the second section, while the third section deals with the making of local identity.

The differing perspectives and analyses presented in this book will be of interested value to academics, students and the general reader seeking a stimulating assessment of the current Hong Kong–China relation.
