This volume clearly reflects the obsession of Greater China - a phrase encompassing China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Chinese diaspora - with the transition of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule, not to mention the possible reunification of China's 'renegade province', Taiwan, and the Mainland. These deep concerns driven not only the research agenda, but also the daily conversation of people in Hong Kong. Indeed, the most frequently asked question asked here for years has been 'What is going to happen after 1997?'
