Item description for Social Development and Political Change in Hong Kong (Academic Monograph on Sociology. Hong Kong Studies) by Lau Siu-kai...

The British rule in Hong Kong ended in 1997 and it is now both timely and intellectually inspiring to look back at the last twenty-five years of the British rule, when Hong Kong was transformed from a low-cost manufacturing base into one of Asia's most vibrant international service centres. The underlying social and political tensions of the society during this period of change constitute the focus of this present monograph, which is a collection of articles written by well known scholars and academics in Hong Kong.

What have been the moral values and motivating forces of the Chinese population during this period of economic growth? How was the population organized and how were political parties formed to air their old grievances and newly found legitimate claims? How did the Hong Kong British government cope with such social forces and conflicts both in the urban areas and among the rural communities? What have been the identities and allegiances of the local populace in view of the Chinese recovery of the city? The authors, who witnessed these events and some even participated in the process, try to answer these and many other questions with convincing eloquence and insights with the help of decade-long surveys and statistical analyses.

Target Readers: The book will be a useful reference to politicians, government officials, policy-makers, and to all those interested in studying the social development and politics of Hong Kong.
