Item description for The First Tung Chee-hwa Administration: The First Five Years of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Academic Monograph on Government/Hong Kong Studies) by Lau Siu-kai...
The book is a study on the administration of the Tung regime including Tung Chee-hwa's leadership and various branches of his government as well as the bureaucracy. It focuses on how Hong Kong has been governed since 1997 in view of the changing political and economic environments. It is an in-depth analysis on various aspects of society, the government and the economy under the Tung regime as much as an overall evaluation of his performance. Questions asked include: To what extent are government policies consistent compared with those under the colonial rule? What does "one country two systems" mean in reality and to what extent is the Tung regime successful to safeguard this principle in practice? Also, to what extent are external economic forces responsible to the seemingly deteriorating Hong Kong economy? How did the bubble of 1997 burst, and has the Hong Kong economy recovered under the stewardship of the Financial Secretary, Donald Tsang? Who are affected most by the restructuring of the economy, and what are some of the long-term implications for Hong Kong as an important world financial center? How are the changes felt and perceived by its people as a whole? Indeed, what are some of the most effective policy measures that the Tung government has initiated to combat the economic and social situations? Lastly, what grade does the Chief Executive deserve with his five years of office?

Reviews - What do customers think about The First Tung Chee-hwa Administration: The First Five Years of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Academic Monograph on Government/Hong Kong Studies)?
Biased and full of conjectures Aug 28, 2003
This is, on the whole, a disappointing book. Much of the views expressed by the author, who has recently joined the Hong Kong government, is biased. Part of such views is full of political conjecture and part of them are obviously biased. It is dangerous to form any fair and accurate opinion of the first 5 years of the Tung Chee Hwa administration just through reading this kind of book.
