Overview

Hong Kong: The Last Prize of Empire by Trea Wiltshire

Last Prize documents the values of Hong Kong's colonial past and reflects them with striking images of Hong Kong today as it shapes its future as part of the China of tomorrow.

The colonial island of Hong Kong began its dramatic transformation as one of the spoils of the notorious Opium Wars, but its dubious birth was soon forgotten as the fast-growing entrep�t became one of the glittering prizes of Empire. This award-winning book, now in its 4th revised edition matches and contrasts sepia images of early Hong Kong with breathtaking contemporary photography.
