Chung Sze-yuen is not only a veteran politician in Hong Kong, but an important figure in the development of Hong Kong in the past forty years. He has played a significant role in Hong Kong's political, economic, educational and social development for over four decades, first when it was a British colony and then a Special Administrative Region of China. Indeed he is probably the only native son of Hong Kong who was closely and actively involved in the entire process of transferring Hong Kong's sovereignty back to China.

The memoirs, written by S.Y. Chung himself, record his personal experiences in Hong Kong's political scene in the two decades between 1979 and 1999 and his role in the Sino-British negotiations which leads to the transition from British colonial rule to a high-degree of autonomy under Chinese sovereignty. Under his outstanding leadership, he helped to bring the Sino-British negotiation on Hong Kong's political future to a successful conclusion. Consequently, Hong Kong was able to achieve a smooth and peaceful transition on 1 July 1997.

This book is a valuable source of information on this important period in the history of Hong Kong. Some of the information was not published before. It will be of interest to all those who wish to know more on what had happened during these pivotal years, which have determined the future course of Hong Kong.

Target Readers
‧All local and overseas politicians and government officials.

‧Scholars of Hong Kong history.

‧Those interested in Hong Kong history.
