Product description

Review

a highly important contribution to the historical record which tells how one man, doggedly and sometimes bloody-mindedly, did his best to help and, insofar as it was possible, to save the people of Hong Kong (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

well-written, never boring, and a significant contribution to the history of Hong Kong (IRISH TIMES)

a useful contribution to history. (ASIAN AFFAIRS)

Dimbleby's account is naturally sympathetic to his subject but is nevertheless well-written, never boring, and a significant contribution to the history of Hong Kong. (IRISH TIMES) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

* Major number 1 bestseller.


* Includes new Foreword commenting on the political furore the book has provoked.
