Hong Kong was one of the last outposts of Empire, remaining a Crown Colony until handover to the Chinese in 1997. In this engaging and amusing memoir, Denys Roberts chronicles his time there from his arrival in 1962 as Solicitor General to his rise to the office of Chief Justice, which he remained until his retirement in 1988. He paints a picture of the unique social life in Hong Kong - a merger between British officials and local business and commercial communities and gives a very sharp and detailed picture of the nature and structure of classic Crown Colony government and administration. "Another Disaster" is an entertaining account of life in one of the last chapters of imperial history.
