Description


The handing over of Hong Kong to China on July 1, 1997 constitutes a truly historic event. It brings to an end a fascinating period of colonialism and raises numerous questions about the future of this magical city. The eyes of the whole world will turn toward it. This book offers a superb photographic portrait of the intriguing city.

All great sights are included, the landmark buildings, the still-unspoiled villages around the city, and the teeming life on the water.

This is one city that will not content itself with being a museum, but has the potential to strike out in new directions, both architecturally and commercially. It will be vital to have a ""still"" of the city at this important juncture in its evolution.

A short introduction gives the essential facts of Hong Kong history and development, some of the flavor of the place, followed by the photographic essay.
