Decolonisation in the Age of Globalisation, Britain, China, and Hong Kong, 1979-89, Chi-kwan Mark

Summary
Drawing extensively on the declassified British archives and Chinese sources, this book explores how Britain and China negotiated for Hong Kong's future, and how Anglo-Chinese relations flourished after 1984. This original study argues that Thatcher was a pragmatic neoliberal, and the British diplomacy of 'educating' China yielded mixed results
