內容簡介

Cohesion and Community in Contemporary Hong Kong (Routledge Contemporary Asia Series)

This is an impressive account of Hong Kong’s contemporary social and spatial structure, exploring issues of community, neighbourhood and social division.

Hong Kong’s policy and political history, its essentially mono-cultural environment and its unique topography and built form have produced a rather different social milieu to make Hong Kong quite distinct from other major cities. In exploring these issues the book will also engage with a number of other topical debates in urban policy, social policy and sociology such as:

  • What does community mean these days?
  • Do people think of themselves as neighbourly and have a sense of local belonging in the midst of this dominant discourse of globalization and more diffuse social networks?
  • What can we learn from Hong Kong as regards social and environmental sustainability?

The authors of this fascinating text fuse locally based research on Hong Kong neighbourhoods with more macro level urban political economy to produce a comprehensive and up-to-date account of social and behavioural change in what is one of the most widely recognized urban landscapes in the world.
