This introductory chapter explains the aims and structure of the book, and sets it within the historiography on the subject and within the theoretical framework developed by Daniel Carpenter. The theme is the gradual growth of autonomy and the roles of the Hong Kong government, the Colonial Office and politicians in the formulation of public policy in Hong Kong during an era when the mass of the population was excluded from the formulation of public policy.

Keywords:   Hong Kong, Governors, Colonial Office, UK, Policy-making, Daniel Carpenter
