Crossed Paths: Labor Activism and Colonial Governance in Hong Kong, 1938-1958
- About the Book
Labor Activism and Colonial Governance in Hong Kong chronicles a long neglected yet formative social and political movement in Hong Kong between the 1930s and 1950s. Drawing upon a range of British and Chinese sources, the book reveals the complex links between labor activism, imperial reform, revolution, and the global Cold War to shed new light on colonialism and activism in modern China.
