Studies of Hong Kong society have long focused one-sidedly upon
economic proserity and political stability. Contributors to this
volume redress this imbalance by taking a critical view of Hong
Kong's political development from the perspectives of social
conflicts and collective actions. Instead of looking at Hong Kong
from the top, this volume documents the active role played by local
actors from below (political groups, student activists, trade
unions, women groups, environmentalists, and community organizers)
and their impact on social and political development in Hong Kong
society in the context of political transition and democratization,
economic restructuring, and an emergent local identity.
