About the Author:

Review:

..".a serious study of the cultural dimensions of contemporary Hong Kong is much needed, and this is what Yiu-Wai Chu provides in his new book." -- Pacific Affairs

"This book is recommended to anyone interested in the identity and development of Hong Kong after the handover as well as to those curious about the consequences of the one country, two systems principle. Readers of this book will find interesting points in the author's analyses which cover political, cultural, and economic aspects." -- China Information

"Even though it is written for an academic audience, this is a very readable book for the average reader. It is also extremely enlightening as it gives us a look into a cosmopolitan city that is changing before our eyes." -- San Francisco Book Review

..".a heartfelt, even white-hot examination of Hong Kong culture since the territory's handover to the Mainland in 1997." -- Modern Chinese Literature and Culture
