About this product
- DescriptionThis volume clearly reflects the obsession of Greater China - a phrase encompassing China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Chinese diaspora - with the transition of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule, t to mention the possible reunification of China's 'renegade province', Taiwan and the Mainland. These deep concerns drive t only the research agenda, but also the daily conversation of people in Hong Kong. Indeed, the most frequently asked question asked here for years has been 'What is going to happen after 1997?' Well, part of the answer to this question is to be found in these pages. In the lead article by Chin-Chuan Lee, Joseph Man Chan and Paul S. N. Lee, we learn that the 'liberal journalism education' of Hong Kong news reporters is regarded as 'bourgeois' by Mainland political leaders, who still view the press as a tool of the state. Perhaps as a result, Hong Kong journalists feel anxious about their future, and very few are confident about press freedom w that the Chinese government has taken control. In sum, the 'future news order will be uneven, indeterminate, and full of contradictions which will entail partial compromises, advances and withdrawal,' say the authors. This is just one of several interesting studies here. Any scholar with special interest in mass communication and Greater China will find this volume seminal in stimulating understanding of the issues.
