This study offers an in-depth analysis of Hong Kong’s role in the earliest stage of the Chinese Communist Movement. The fact that Hong Kong, then a British colony, was pivotally involved in the Communist development in Guangdong in the 1920s and 1930s has been little known. The importance of this book is further enhanced by the consideration that much of the early foundation of the Chinese Communist Movement was laid in Guangdong.

Professor Chan Lau Kit-ching of the Department of History, the University of Hong Kong, has written extensively on Sino-British relations and Hong Kong.
