Product description


"Has Hong Kong changed under two decades of Chinese rule? Not in the way pessimists predicted, Simon Cartledge demonstrates--it remains a place apart. Yet the post-handover political structure cares more about preserving wealth than fostering dynamism. Protecting vested interests has allowed cronyism to flourish. This more than anything explains people's frustration at Hong Kong's straitjacketed constitutional arrangements. A System Apart argues wisely for a new course for Hong Kong. It is a work of great concision and clarity. And it will fit in your back pocket." --Dominic Ziegler, The Economist
