Drawing together contributions from historians, sociologists and political scientists the book highlights the role played by a variety of social actors in Hong Kong's history and differs both from recent celebrations of British colonialism and anti-colonial Chinese nationalism. It covers the Chinese collaboration with the colonial regime, legal discrimination and intimidation, rural politics, the ruling elite, social movements, government-business relations, industrial policy, flexible manufacturing and colonial historiography.
