Abstract:

"The Hong Kong Basic Law is the constitutional document which sets out the general policies and system of government for Hong Kong under the 'one country, two systems' formula.

It is required reading for students on a wide range of courses in law, politics, and other disciplines, from sub-degree through to undergraduate and postgraduate level as well as professional examinations...The second edition has been updated...to discuss important new developments, including the implications of the mass street protests known as the Umbrella Movement, and adds a new concluding chapter on the future of 'one country, two systems.'"--
