Since its return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 Hong Kong has been undergoing a sweeping transformation. This book is a multidisciplinary assessment of the new regime and key issues, challenges, crises, and opportunities confronting the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Leading scholars document and examine major developments and unfolding trends, and also speculate on different aspects of Hong Kong's gradual integration with China and possible trajectories for the future. They cover the political, electoral, and administrative systems; Hong Kong's legal and constitutional functioning; language policy and education reforms; media politics and cultural trends; and the Asian economic crisis, economic development, and land-use planning.
