Abstract: This new and fully revised edition of Contemporary Hong Kong politics critically assesses the main strands of continuity and change in Hong Kong's government and politics since the creation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in 1997. It first investigates the core institutions of the SAR, focusing on the Executive, the Legislature, the Judiciary, the civil service, District Councils, and advisory and statutory bodies. It then examines progress in democratic reform in in Hong Kong and the main components of civil society, including political parties, elections, political identity, and mass media and public opinion. Analyses of key policy sectors then follow. In its concluding chapters, the volume explores Hong Kong's relations with the Mainland and the wider world. This book is essential reading for anyone--student, teacher or researcher--interested in Hong Kong's experience under "one country, two systems."
