Hong Kong

£19.99

Product description

Here at last is a vivid and truthful portrait of Hong Kong - a portrait painted with feeling and fidelity. This book depicts not only the everyday life and beautiful setting of Hong Kong, but much of the historical and artistic heritage which has influenced its development. The people of Hong Kong come in for special scrutiny, as do their ancestors in Old China; for what impresses the author, and what he has succeeded in conveying so well here, is that people in all ages, of all creeds and nationalities, are linked by the same ideals, unchanging over the centuries.
The name Hong Kong evokes many things; a China coast port and all the adventure that the term implies; a meeting place of East and West; a place to trade and a place to buy the exotic goods of the Orient; the gateway to China, that vast uncompromising land. This book explores all the emotional climates of Hong Kong - not with the casual eye of the transient visitor but with the experience and sympathy of a man who has lived in Hong Kong and observed the Colony in all its moods.
In this book Lloyd Smith has presented with honesty, perception and talent the fascinating story of Hong Kong, with glimpses of its old-world neighbour, Macao.

The book features numerous colour and black-and-white photographs, and features chapters on Chinese Art and History, Rural Life, Industrialism and Fashions.

Book condition: Fair - former owner's inscription to front pastedown, some internal markings. Dust jacket condition: Fair - chipped and price clipped.
