Overview

Collaborative Colonial Power: The Making of the Hong Kong Chinese by Wing Sang Law

This book offers an alternative perspective to look into Hong Kong's colonial pasts, tracing how malleable forms of colonial power are underpinning institutions and cultural imaginaries across the social body. Such a collaborative colonial power formation gave shape to the Hong Kong Chinese and its impacts are still lingering after 1997.
