Cultural Conflict in Hong Kong
Editors: Dr Jason Polley, Associate Professor; Dr Vinton Poon, Lecturer; and Professor Wee Lian-hee, Professor, Department of English Language and Literature
This book examines how in navigating Hong Kong’s colonial history alongside its ever-present Chinese identity, the city has come to manifest a conflicting socio-cultural plurality. Focussing on cultural elements appropriated into Hong Kong’s social tapestry through the spectrum of its social classes, this book draws together scholars, critics, commentators and creators on the vanguard of the emerging field of Hong Kong studies.
