About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Provides a balanced view and up-to-date analysis of topical subject
    • Examines the implications of reversion to China across a wide range of issues - economic, political, trade, military and legal
    • Written by leading experts on Hong Kong and China
