Whither Hong Kong? relates the rich history of the former British colony from 1841 to 1999, and discusses its prospects. This book brings together seven leaders in their fields who have intimate, unique knowledge of Hong Kong. They follow the territory after it became a British colony after the first Opium War (1840-1842), Japan's World War II attack and occupation, economic development, democracy movements, the psychology of the Chinese, and more. This book reviews and analyzes British rule and colonialism, Sino-British relations, American involvement, the HK people and their interface with Westerners, as well as their drive to achieve and maintain their traditions. It includes assessments for Hong Kong's continued growth and prosperity, autonomy, democracy, and autocracy. Many themes are stressed, including autocracy and humanism in China and Hong Kong's history, and the indomitable spirit of the Chinese people. Singapore and Macau are compared to Hong Kong.
