Hong Kong at the Handover explores the days of handover through the words of leading Hong Kong citizens. Bruce Herschensohn utilizes transcribed interviews to tell the story of one of the most important events of this generation: the takeover of a political entity through a 99-year-old treaty. Herschensohn emphasizes the irony of the Chinese government coming to Hong Kong, the majority of whose people had fled from that same government. Throughout the book, Herschensohn seeks to record for history the words of many leading and varied interests in Hong Kong at the time of handover. Hong Kong at the Handover will be of interest to students and scholars of Asian studies and foreign affairs.
