This volume offers an account of recent and current art made in Hong Kong in the years leading up to the handover of British sovereignty to China in 1997. This process differed from many other experiences of the post-colonial elsewhere in the world in that it did not end in independence but in absorption into a much larger entity with an entirely different political system. Until now, the cultural aspects of this transition have not been given the attention they deserve, apart perhaps from the analysis of film.
