Chinese communists and Hong Kong capitalists : 1937-1997 by Cindy Yik-yi Chu( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ground-breaking work emphasizes the crucial relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese business elite of Hong Kong during the 60 years before 1997. The author argues convincingly that the strategy of collaborating closely with capitalists, far from contradicting the ideological principles of Communism, in fact has deep roots in the Party's decades-old united front policy. This is a powerful revelation for historians of modern China and for readers concerned with contemporary developments." - Elizabeth Sinn, Former Deputy Director of the Centre of Asian Studies, University of Hong Kong "Chu argues that the implementation of the 'one country, two systems' model guaranteeing Hong Kong's capitalist system until 2047 must be understood through the framework of the Chinese Communists' united front strategy that began in the 1930s. Chu questions the conventional assumption that the Chinese Communist Party had no understanding of Hong Kong's capitalist system. Rather, she shows how the Communists adapted to the colony's capitalist environment by creating a network of local agencies under direct Party control. Unlike on the mainland, the Communists worked hard to forge effective alliances with Hong Kong's Chinese capitalists. By the eve of the handover in 1997, the Communists had consolidated the support of big business for the retrocession to Chinese sovereignty. This important new study contributes not only to our understanding of Hong Kong history but also of the Chinese Communist Party." - John M. Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong
Foreign communities in Hong Kong, 1840s-1950s by Cindy Chu( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume studies ethnic minority groups in Hong Kong from the 1840s through the 1950s. It aims to portray Hong Kong history through the perspectives of foreign communities - the British, Germans, Europeans, Americans, Indians, and Japanese - and to understand how they perceived the economic situation, political administration, and culture of the colony. In the chapters, Hong Kong history is seen from the viewpoints of foreign adventurers, businessmen, traders, missionaries, teachers, diplomats, servicemen, officials, artists, ramblers, and opportunity-seekers
The Maryknoll Sisters in Hong Kong, 1921-1969 : in love with the Chinese by Cindy Yik-yi Chu( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maryknoll Sisters in Hong Kong, 1921-1969: In Love with the Chinese describes the adaptation of American women to cross-cultural situations in Hong Kong from 1921 to 1969. The Maryknoll Sisters were the first American Catholic community of women founded for overseas missionary work, and were the first American Sisters in Hong Kong. Maryknollers were independent, outgoing, and joyful women who were highly educated, and acted in professional capacities as teachers, social workers, and medical personnel. The assertion of this book is that the mission provided Maryknollers what they had long desired--equal employment opportunities--which were only later emphasized in the women's liberation movement of the 1960s

Catholicism in China, 1900-present : the development of the Chinese Church by Cindy Yik-yi Chu( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every China scholar is familiar with the four attempts to introduce Christianity into China. This volume takes up the story of the missions in China from 1900 to the present, and covers such topics as local history, the ending of the civil patronage over the missions, the first six Chinese Catholic bishops, and Sino-Vatican relations. It is a 'must-read' for all those interested in the history of Christianity in China during the twentieth century."--Peter Barry, English editor, Tripod "This book discusses a most complex topic. Its exceptional value is in that it presents a readable, comprehensive, balanced, and academically well-founded overview on the growth of the Chinese Church in Communist China. Well-known China experts from various disciplines present interesting views on aspects related to the general topic: history, religion, politics, culture, art, and indigenization. The reader learns much about the past as well as on the challenges ahead for Christianity in China."--Jeroom Heyndrickx, CICM, Founder, Verbiest Institute, Louvain University, Belgium
