产品描述

The epitome of the modern city and a crossroads between eastern and western cultures, Hong Kong today is most famously characterized by its skyscraper skyline dominating the harbor. Yet beneath the surface of Hong Kong’s image as Pearl of the Orient and shopping paradise is a city rich in history, myth, and cultural diversity, which took its return from British to Chinese sovereignty in stride. Ingham describes such occupants as the Buddhists, the Mongols, the northern Chinese, the British, the Japanese army, the triads, the Filipino ‘maids’ and the rugby fans. He looks at the architecture of this city of glass, bamboo, and feng shui, and considers a culture that incorporates Sun Yat-sen and Sir Catchick Paul Chater, Bruce Lee and Chris Patten, Suzie Wong and Wong Kar-wai, Timothy Mo and Mickey Mouse.
