Synopsis

Hong Kong is the worlds most exciting city, at once fascinating and exasperating, a tangle of contradictions. It is a dazzling amalgam of conspicuous consumption and primitive poverty, the most architecturally incongruous yet undeniably beautiful urban panorama of all. Through firsthand reportage, world-renowned travel writer Jan Morris takes us through the crowded streets of this enigmatic city, offering the most insightful and comprehensive study of Hong Kong thus far. She reviews Hong Kongs early days as a British opium port controlled by pirates, cutthroats, and scoundrel tycoons, and looks ahead to the citys future as part of the Peoples Republic of China.
