Torrent description

From a little-known fishing community at the periphery of China, Hong Kong developed into one of the world's most spectacular and cosmopolitan cities after a century and a half of British imperial rule. The history of Hong Kong, from its occupation by the British in 1841 to its return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997, is a fascinating story of East meeting West. This book addresses the changing relations between the local Chinese and expatriate communities in 156 years of British rule, and the emergence of a local identity. It explains the importance of China as a factor in its development and the origins of the so-called "1997 problems," thus analyzing the underlying reasons for the rise of a liberal society committed to the rule of law without democracy.

"Tsang's history is authoritative and well-researched...From rock to great metropolis, the story storms along, full of heroes and villains, eccentrics and visionaries, bounders and buccaneers." -- Chris Patten, New Statesman
"Clearly written, logically organized and sustains a tone of persuasive authority." --Wm Roger Louis, University of Texas at Austin
"Having spent half his life in Hong Kong and half in the West, Mr Tsang is uniquely placed to write this book. He has produced what must be the definitive history of Hong Kong." -- Contemporary Review
"This is a well constructed, thorough yet succinct history of Hong Kong. It should be on the shelf of everyone interested in the city. for the general reader, this will stimulate further interest. For the experts, enjoy Tsang's fine style." -- Christine Loh, Civic Exchange
"A respected Oxford scholar brought up in Hong Kong, [Steve Tsang] has drawn on a vast array of sources, Chinese as well as British, to produce a thorough and well-crafted study which should appeal to the general reader as well as the specialist…For those who want to understand the importance of the territory’s British legacy in its continuing success, Dr Tsang’s study is likely to remain the best guide for some time to come." -- Sir Robin McLaren, China Review
