Item description for Times Of Change: A Memoir Of Hong Kong's Governance 1950-1991 (Social Sciences in Asia) (v. 4) by Eric Ho...
A Hong Kong native who joined the expatriate dominated civil service of that territory, the author describes the institutional barriers he encountered. Prejudice and frustrations notwithstanding, he eventually reaches the top level of the service. Starting as an income tax assessor, Eric Ho worked successively in expenditure control, fisheries, external commercial relations, and communications between the government and the people. He emerges as policy co-ordinator for education, health, welfare and manpower services, and then returns to the trade and industry field. Next to this, he served on the Joint Liaison Group established under the Sino-British Agreement which returned Hong Kong to China. With its observations on changing attitudes and accounts of certain international negotiations, this book will be of interest to historians, scholars and the general reader.
