The 1997 Hong Kong handover was no laughing matter...or maybe it was!

Read the cartoons that chronicled the End of Empire, in this special 20th anniversary edition.

In March 1997 controversial, award-winning cartoonist Larry Feign was commissioned by a British newspaper to chronicle an unprecedented moment in history-The Reunification of China! The End of the British Empire!-and all the rumors, worst-case scenarios and unforgettable events:

Pre-handover supermarket specialsLast-minute pregnancies before the one-child policy kicked inThe greatest onslaught of tacky souvenirs in historyThe invasion of the foreign journalistsBritain finally lifts a finger for Hong Kong

This book contains the entire series, plus cartoons from Time, Geo Magazine, and several previously unpublished cartoons, as well as A Politically Incorrect View of the Handover. You'll laugh almost as loud as Chinese leaders laugh at Hong Kong people's calls for democracy.

About Larry Feign

Larry Feign is an award-winning writer and artist whose work has appeared in Time, The Economist, Fortune, the New York Times, and other publications. He has directed animated cartoons for Cartoon Network and Disney Television. His satirical books have been consistent bestsellers in his home base of Hong Kong, while his 'Lily Wong' comic strip was considered a bellwether of life and politics in the territory. His satirical commentary about the Hong Kong handover was Time Magazine's first-ever full-page cartoon essay.
