Editorial Reviews

Having considered the impending reversion to China of Hong Kong in a 1995 study, Schipp turns to Macau, which will leave Portuguese rule after 442 years on December 20, 1999. He provides a historical perspective of the island's responses to recent wars, the influence of the Cultural Revolution, secret agreements between China and Portugal during the 1960s and 1970s, arrangements for the transfer, and prospects under Chinese control. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
