About the Author:

Sheilah E. Hamilton is a forensic scientist and Adjunct Professor at the City University of Hong Kong. She has worked closely with the territory's public police and private security sectors for nearly forty years.

Review:

Watching Over Hong Kong is a welcome addition to the historical literature, plugging an important gap and providing a comprehensive and impressive account of the emergence of private security in Hong Kong. Sheilah Hamilton has undertaken some striking historical research and presents her findings in a highly readable and engaging style. The book will be compelling reading for anyone studying or with an interest in security, policing or the history of Hong Kong. (Dr. Mark Button, Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, University of Portsmouth)

Her book is a case study in the interplay of forces inherent in public-private policing and clearly demonstrates how the foundation stones of today's structure of public private policing in Hong Kong were laid down. (Offbeat)
