Abstract:

"The transition of the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong to the government of the People's Republic of China was a long and arduous process. Although the political and social aspects have been studied at length, this is the first time a variety of religious communities have been considered and studied in depth regarding the changes beginning in 1984 and continuing to the 1997 transfer and beyond. The author has interviewed the prominent religious leaders of Hong Kong, observing and analyzing the responses of Christians, Taoists, Buddhists, and Confucians as to how they were preparing for ministry amid all the new socio-political trends."--Jacket.
