On 20 December 1999, the longest-running chapter in Macao's history will close. After over 450 years of administration, Portugal will hand over one of the oldest colonies the world has ever known to China. This book commemorates this vital juncture in Macao's history through interviews with thirty people, representing most of Macao's unique mixture of races, creeds, classes, and traditions.
