Before the 1960s Hong Kong generally received little serious scholarly attention. As a small colony it had not played an important part in the history of the British Commonwealth, nor had it been regarded as part of China proper. The Communist riots in 1967 enhanced awareness of Hong Kong as an extension of the phenomenal problems created by the Cultural Revolution. In this book the author traces the vicissitudes of Communism in Hong Kong and Guangdong from the inception of the Movement in 1921, through the first united front of the Chinese Communist Party and the Guomindong, the Guangzhou-Hong Kong strike-boycott, the CCP/GMD split, and the eventual dissipation of the Communist movement in the region.
