Heritage of Hong Kong: Its History, Architecture & Culture
82 pag. hardcover 21 x 26 cm
Hong Kong's brief but crowded history has bequeathed to the world one of its major features of human endeavor. Lacking all natural resources other than a superb harbor, it built within its limited geographical constraints a centre of global commerce seldom matched in the infinitely longer history of mankind. Bound up with Hong Kong's achievements are its culture and architecture, each with landmarks of rapid progress and evolution extending to the post-handover era. All three defining aspects - history, architecture and culture - are treated by writers whose informed opinions lend a spectrum of authority to this recent FormAsia title.
