Hong Kong's Watershed: The 1967 Riots is the first English
book that provides an account and critical analysis of the
disturbances based on declassified files from the British
government and recollection by key players during the events. The
interviews with the participants, including Jack Cater, Liang
Shangyuan, George Walden, Tsang Tak-sing, Tsang Yok-sing, and Hong
Kong government officials, left irreplaceable records of oral
history on the political upheaval.
The book analyses the causes and repercussions of the 1967 riots
which are widely seen as a watershed of postwar history of Hong
Kong. It depicts the prelude to the 1967 riots, including the Star
Ferry riots in 1966, the leftist-instigated riots in Macau in 1966,
and the major events leading to the disturbances, including the
labour dispute at a plastic flower factory, the border conflict in
Sha Tau Kok, bomb attacks and arson attacks on the office of
British charge d'affaires in Beijing.
