Book Description

Hong Kong has been undergoing considerable changes since its postcolonial independence. This book provides a detailed comparative account of the development of citizenship and civil society in Hong Kong from its time as a British colony to its current status as a special autonomous region of China. Subjects covered include immigration, race, gender, homosexuality, the law and resistance. The book also compares citizenship and civil society in Hong Kong with a number of other East Asian countries.
