The editorials collected in this book date from 1975 to 1984—when the signing of the Joint Declaration between Britain and China and Hong Kong was negotiated, which led to intense debates about this incongruous scenario. Dr. Lam’s editorials and conjectures provided a focal point for discussing Hong Kong’s future. His views on housing, assimilating immigrants, and the collusion of politics and business still inform.
