Booknews
Ten papers provide observations and analysis for a more informed understanding of the historical roots and the contemporary dramas of Hong Kong's passage over 155 years from Chinese frontier village to British Crown Colony and finally to Socialist China's Special Administrative Region. Early drafts of some of the papers were first presented at a symposium entitled "The Historic Triangle of China, Britain, and Hong Kong," held at Hong Kong Baptist College in June 1987. Paper edition (381-4), $22. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
