The Dragon of Hong Kong
Follows the adventures of Yoko Tsuno, an electronics engineer who crosses the globe and travels through time and space.
Chasing the Dragon
Until it was pulled down, the Walled City was Hong Kong's most foreboding territory. It was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads, and which the police hesitated to enter. Strangers were unwelcome. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished, as did prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set sail from England in 1966 she had no idea that God was calling her to the Walled City. Yet, as she spoke of Jesus Christ, brutal Triad gangsters were converted, prostitutes quit, and Jackie discovered a new treatment for drug addiction: baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Scouting in Hong Kong 1910 2010
Scouting in Hong Kong, 1910-2010 covers the "what, how, when, who, why and so what" of the Hong Kong Scout Movement from 1910 to 2010, using a large volume of primary sources. It deals with the development of the youth movement both as a subject of enquiry and as an analytical tool which may shed light upon the broader history of Hong Kong. The author combines professed aim of Scouting (citizenship), the key motives for supporting it (governance, war, secular education and religious conversion) and the most relevant differentiating identities (race, class, gender and age) to analyze the experience of young people involved in Hong Kong Scouting throughout the years, both colonial and post-colonial. The book is richly illustrated with interesting and instructive images and relied heavily on a doctoral dissertation by the author, though they are also significantly different in both structure and content. It is a critical study aimed at both general readers and readers with more specific interests, and should enrich their understanding of the histories of Scouting, youth, citizenship education, the colonies, the British Empire, decolonization, China and Hong Kong. By reconstructing the evolution of Scouting from a niche movement for a handful of British boys before the First World War to a fully indigenized and co-educational mass movement in the post-colonial Hong Kong society, it fills a gap in the historical studies of youth movements around the world. By analyzing how the movement and the (re)construction of its particular brand of citizenship training reflected the development of the community, it adds to our understanding of the political, cultural and social history of Hong Kong, often influenced by that of China. By demonstrating the uniqueness of its evolution in the colonial context, it provides useful comparative insights into the history of imperialism and colonial youth movements. By exploring the choices made by local Scouting since Hong Kong's retrocession of sovereignty to China, it compliments other studies on decolonization and post-colonial citizenship.

Global Hong Kong
Global Hong Kong locates Hong Kong in the contemporary globalizing world. Hong Kong, as the authors argue, is an archetypal place, sitting at the intersection of East and West. It is also a major center for global capital flows and world trade. Moreover, in recent years, the island's global cultural power has become increasingly evident, as Hong Kong popular culture has spread to the West via a booming film industry. While looking at issues of postcoloniality, transnationalism and economic globalization, Wong and McDonogh focus on the new cultures and social formations of contemporary Hong Kong, as well as the transformation of the physical city itself. They also trace the new interconnections - economic, demographic, social and cultural - between Hong Kong and other parts of the worldthat have benn fostered by globalization. Books in this series look at how nations and regions across the world are navigating the tumultuous currents of globalization. Concise, descriptive, interdisciplinary, and theoretically informed, they serve as ideal introductions to the peoples and places of our increasingly globalized world.
In a pictorial essay of a city in transition, eleven photographers focus their talents on Hong Kong as it prepares to transfer from British colonial rule to Chinese rule in 1997.
