Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First USA edition, third print hardback of HONG KONG REMEMBERS by Sally Blyth and Ian Wotherspoon and published by Oxford University Press, New York, in 1996. Foreword by Margaret Thatcher. Signed by Sally Blyth on the rear of the half title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean orange cloth boards with gold lettering on the spine, boards have very slight creasing to the spine edges and very slight rubbing to the corners but nothing too drastic) with only minor shelf wear to the dust jacket which has no price on it. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"The story of Hong Kong's social, political and economic development is a remarkable Chinese-British chronicle. This book contains first-hand accounts of life and times in Hong Kong from before the Second World War to the end of its life as a colonial territory.

Over six decades, Hong Kong has been transformed from a sleepy colonial backwater, to an overcrowded, refugee haven, fraught with health and welfare problems, to a shining model of laissez-faire capitalism with an exemplary public housing programme, a modicum of democracy, and a thriving, hybrid cultural life. The contributors to this book recall the important events along the rocky path of development, from the housing crisis of the 1950s and the 1967 anti-Government riots, to the sobering affect of the Tiananmen Incident in 1989 , and the contentious politics of the transition to Chinese rule in 1997.

Among those who tell how it happened are the former Governors Lord MacLehose, Lord Wilson, and Christopher Patten; Lady May Ride, who, for the first time, reflects on her eighty years in the Territory; Hong Kong's most important democracy advocate, Martin Lee; colourful media tycoon Jimmy Lai; a former drug addict; a political cartoonist; a former Communist guerrilla; and a Maryknoll sister. Their recollections are opinionated, personal, poignant, amusing, and always informative. Collectively they provide a unique and valuable account of Hong Kong's recent past."

285 pages. Maps on endpapers. Illustrated with 42 small black/white photographs.
