No territory in the world has a more vivid and tumultuous history, square mile for square mile, as Hong Kong. It is, or has been, the greatest entreport in the world, the base for the great trading companies of the Far East, the headquarters of half the international crooks in the world and the site of great fortunes lost and won. This book provides a historical background to understanding the present condition of Hong Kong.
