Reviews - What do customers think about Hong Kong Metamorphosis?

The story of post-war Hong Kong  Apr 14, 2010
This is an excellent meander over the post-war history of Hong Kong told via autobiography by a well regarded British colonial government officer. Denis was to a large extent Chinese - being born in Hong Kong and speaking Cantonese when small at the local school near the then Canton in southern China pre-war where his father was a missionary.

Read this book before reading any other histories of Hong Kong by more famous authors. To glean some of the authentic realities of life from Denis Brays account will lead to being able much better to understand other authors more birds-eye accounts of Hong Kong history.
