Celebrating the past and future of a city that stands at the crossroads of two worlds, Morris combines firsthand reporting with incisive research, and takes students from Hong Kong's clamorous back alleys to the crowded floor of the stock exchange, along the way offering an informed glimpse into its future. Morris's story chronicles the exploits of opium traders and pirates, colonists and financiers, and shows how their descendants view the prospect of reunification with the Chinese mainland. Her final chapter--new to this edition--details the very latest in relations between the Chinese and the British.
