Hong Kong's Chinese History Curriculum from 1945: Politics and
Identity investigates the ways in which Chinese history has
evolved as a subject in Hong Kong secondary schools since 1945, and
the various social, political and economic factors that have shaped
the curriculum, through an examination of a wide range of primary
and secondary source materials and interviews.
This book examines how the aims, content, teaching, learning and
assessment of the Chinese history curriculum have evolved since
1945. It describes how Chinese history became an independent
subject in secondary schools in Hong Kong despite the political
sensitivity of the subject, how it consolidated its status during
the colonial period, and how it has faced threats to its
independence since the return of Hong Kong to China in 1997. An
important element of the book is its in-depth analysis of the major
socio-political and socio-economic forces that have been involved
in the development of Chinese history.
This book will be of interest to all who are interested in history
education and curriculum development, and readers who are concerned
with history education.
