Hongkong Weekly Press Online

Hongkong Weekly Press Online
The Hongkong Weekly Press Online shows the Crown Colony in a watershed period of unrest. With the British government incapacitated by social unrest and the General Strike of 1926, and Hongkong paralysed by the Guangzhou-Hongkong dock and other strikes of 1925-1926, the British Foreign Office sleepwalked into a period of Imperial drift in East Asia. This dynamic holding tells the tale of Hongkong's run-up to and wounded escape from disaster in the 1920s with close, powerful reporting of a very high standard.
