Hong Kong Society: High-Definition Stories beyond the Spectacle of East-Meets-West

Hong Kong Society: High-Definition Stories beyond the Spectacle of East-Meets-West by Stephen WK Chiu
English | EPUB | 2022 | 411 Pages | ISBN : 9811657068 | 9.5 MB

This book borrows the concept of “high-definition” from digital broadcasting to highlight our unique approach to Hong Kong society, which gives a sharper image than analyses. It intends to highlight contrasts with many common and taken-for-granted stories, myths and representations of Hong Kong— which often presented with a low level of detail, lacking proper connections between grounded personal experiences and the macro social context. With chapters covering various salient dimensions of Hong Kong’s society, including migration, economy, inequality, identity and social movements, our “high-definition” approach presents images with high enough “resolution” to match multiple layers of experiences from walks of life of Hong Kong people, contributing to an understanding of how global transformation impacts local people’s experiences, as well as Hong Kong’s significance in the regional and global system.
