Description

In 1997 the British colony of Hong Kong reverted to the People's Republic of China after over 150 years under British control. Two years later, in 1999, the Portuguese-administered territory of Macau will be reunited with the mainland. How did these two capitalist systems manage to survive, clinging to the edge of communist China, until the late 20th century? With introductory essay and bibliography...the dictionary's uniqueness fills a subject void for many collections. - LIBRARY JOURNAL ...serves well as a handy tool for those who need a quick reference to some essential features of the history of Hong Kong and Macau. - PACIFIC VIEWPOINT ...as a quick reference to personalities, institutions, and events...will be especially handy for the increasing number of journalists writing about the handover of the last imperial outposts on China's coast. - FAR EASTERN ECONOMIC REVIEW
