One of the most politically sensitive and highly charged events of the waning years of the twentieth century was Britain's turnover of Hong Kong to the Chinese in 1997. Predictions that this Far Eastern center of commerce and finance would be radically changed by its new rulers have proved unfounded. Here is a fact-filled but always entertaining account of a year in the life of the new Hong Kong, by the journalist who knows the metropolis best. From business and financial machinations and political intrigue to hair-raising tales of Triad gangsters in Macau, Jonathan Fenby's new book is a brilliant snapshot of what's really happening in the epicenter of the new Asia.
