The Dragon and the Crown – Hong Kong Memoirs Kwan, Stanley


The memoirs give a voice to the ordinary people whose lives have been profoundly affected by the dramatic changes in Hong Kong: from an entrepôt to an international financial centre and from a colony to become a part of China. The book contributes to the ongoing search for Hong Kong identity and will resonate among those who live in or are interested in Hong Kong. A talk and roundtable on different aspects of Hong Kong history to which Stanley Kwan, architect of one of the world's leading economic indicators, the Hang Seng Index, was an eyewitness. Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
