The focus of this book is the impact Chinese control is likely to have on Hong Kong's role in the international economic system, and how the business community will be affected. Issues of trade and finance, of political economy, and concerns about Chinese respect for the rule of law predominate. The result is a balanced analysis of a sensitive subject: the prospects for Hong Kong's continued success and freedom.

Review:

In Hong Kong Under Chinese Rule 13 authors examine the implications of reversion for the former British colony. The consensus seems to be short-term optimism but long-term pessimism. The rulers in Beijing may not want to mess with a good thing (Hong Kong's economic prosperity), but their continued ability to keep their hands off this vibrant city is an open question. The book has an academic bent and suffers from stylistic weaknesses: the authors write competently but not always engagingly. But there are strengths, too: you will be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgeable treatment of this important subject.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English. Brand new Book. What will the reversion of Hong Kong mean to the people of Hong Kong - and the rest of us - who invest, trade, and shop there? Over the last fifty years Hong Kong has served as a refuge from those who fled communism in China. It became the greatest entrepot and financial center on the Asian mainland. A stunning percentage of the world's trade passed through its magnificent harbor. The focus of this book is on the impact Chinese control is likely to have on the city's role in the international economic system, and how the business community will be affected. Issues of trade and finance, of political economy, and concerns about Chinese respect for the rule of law predominate. The result is a balanced analysis of a sensitive subject: the prospects for Hong Kong's continued success and freedom. Seller Inventory # AAC9780521627610
