"The book will make an important contribution to the debate regarding Hong Kong cultural identity. It will also have a significant impact on international scholarship relating to consumption and consumer studies... I will most certainly be making frequent use of it in my own research and I know many other scholars, living in several countries, who will do the same. James L. Watson, Fairbank Professor of Chinese Society and Professor of Anthropology, Harvard University
