The book analyzes various aspects of the process of Macau's transition from a Portuguese autonomous territory to a Chinese special administrative region. It analyzes the role of those involved in the process building Beijing, Lisbon, the local Portuguese Macau administration, the Macau branch of the New China News Agency, the Luso-Chinese Joint Liaison Group and the local political and social groups. It stresses the dynamics of interactions between actors as well as the political, economic and social changes in the enclave that have direct or indirect impact on the transition.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Herbert Yee's timely study is an excellent source of information on and analysis of salient socio-political issues in the transition of Macau from Portuguese possession to become a Special Administrative Region in one of the most economically vibrant areas of the People's Republic of China. It will appeal to a wide readership in academe, government, the professions and indeed, all who take a serious interest in Macau itself and the historical and political implications of the re-emergence of a united China.' - Professor Brian Hook, Emeritus Leverhulme Fellow, Editor, The China Quarterly 1980-1991

'Herbert Yee's authoritative Macau in Transition: From Colony to Autonomous Region is a timely and remarkably sober and insightful source for understanding the important socio-political essentials of this historic transition and for seeing it informatively, in the comparative perspective of Hong Kong's return to Chinese sovereignty.' - Professor Stephen Uhalley, Kiriyama and EDS Distinguished Fellow, University of San Francisco

'...balanced scholarly analysis of Macau's recent transition to Chinese rule.' - Donald H. McMillen, Professor of Asian and International Studies, University of Southern Queensland
