Hong Kong in Transition free pdf There may be no precedent in peacetime for the handing over of a whole society, functioning according to one set of rules, to another sovereign state which functions according to often quite different rules and values. This was the prospect facing Hong Kong, however, as it approached the handover to China in 1997. Such a transition inevitably throws up a range of pressing issues calling out for scholarly analysis. In this book leading observers of the Hong Kong scene examine issues that followed the transfer of sovereignty. Using a variety of disciplinary perspectives, they probe the impact of the handover on the business environment, the currents of political and administrative life, the constitutional and legal dilemmas of the transition, human rights and identity crises, and the prospects for Hong Kong's external relations. Will Hong Kong survive? Read this book and see what you think.
