A Profile of Hong Kong provides a detailed history of colonialism in Hong Kong that still reverberates today. Despite this tumultuous history, there are many things that make Hong Kong special and worth fighting for. For over 100 years, the Hong Kong people have been fighting for liberty despite the constant oppression from other countries. Bruce Herschensohn shows how years of riots and protests demonstrate the resilience of the Hong Kong people and the determination to make their country belong to them. With compelling firsthand accounts, A Profile of Hong Kong explores the history of this political entity from a 99-year treaty to the handover to the recent powerful protests for liberty. Herschensohn emphasizes the irony of the Chinese government coming to Hong Kong, the majority of whose people had fled from that same government, and how these very people are once again facing oppression from this repressive government.Herschensohn includes through descriptions of the changes for Hong Kong people that were put into place 100 years ago as well as descriptions of major international figures in the complicated history of Hong Kong. While there are large effects of other countries on Hong Kong, Hong Kong has also had effects on other countries. “Once you have visited Hong Kong. it would never stop visiting you.”
