Synopsis: Explores the city's history, its blend of Eastern and Western traditions, and its hopes for the future as Hong Kong prepares to become a part of the People's Republic of China

From the Back Cover: Combining firsthand reportage with exemplary research, Morris takes readers from Hong Kong's clamorous back alleys to the luxurious Happy Valley racecourse, where taipans place their bets between sips of champagne and bird's nest soup. Morris chronicles the exploits of traders, pirates, colonists, financiers, and shows how their descendants view the prospect of reunification with the Chinese mainland. What emerges is an epic tableau, vastly informed and pungently evocative.

Book Description Vintage Books, 1989. Paperback. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Vintage Trade Paperback Good Condition. Clean, clear, bright and unmarked cover. Text block toned. Pages toned on margins, clear and unmarked. Lower corner crease. Map on page after table of contents. Jan Morris travels to Hong Kong during its last days under British rule. An exciting, fascinating and exasperating city. She takes us through the crowded streets of the city, the crowded floor of the Stock Exchange, the Happy Valley racecourse. Also, Morris depicts a British opium port controlled by pirates, cutthroats, and scoundrel tycoons in the early days of Hong Kong. In the final chapter for the Vintage edition, she looks ahead to July 1, 1997, the day when Britain's 99-year lease expires and Hong Kong is annexed to the People's Republic of China. New York: Vintage Books, 1989 Third Printing. 5.25"x8" tall; 369pp. with Chronology, Reading List, Thanks, and Index. Seller Inventory # 52711
