Coloniality and Hong Kong Chineseness

(p.1) Introduction
Collaborative Colonial Power

Law Wing Sang

Hong Kong University Press

The chapter explains that this book argues that collaboration is the key to finding an extended analytical framework within which to grasp the power formation of Hong Kong. It intends not to argue that Hong Kong is the only place where colonial rule relied on collaboration, but that the existence of pervasive collaborative relations provides a convenient but often-neglected route to understanding the irregularly shaped cultural landscapes of Hong Kong. It notes that the book will account for the large variety of interests and forces involved in order to show the mobility and the variability these colonial cultural forms (i.e. colonialities) manifested.
