Hong Kong's journey from British entrept to China's international financial centre is one of the most interesting legal stories of our time. But Hong Kong's future is even more interesting: will this region with British-origin institutions survive full integration into China and become its permanent international financial centre?

It closes with a view of Hong Kong from the perspective of developments in Beijing and Shanghai, including an examination of the important political dimension"--"@en ;
