The conclusion of the book that summarizes the chapters and briefly discusses the major historical questions. The book suggests that Hong Kong was strategically important in the history of East Asia from the mid-19th century to the 1970s. Without an adequate appreciation of its military past, it is impossible to understand fully the history of the ex-colony and its role in the international relations of the 19th and 20th centuries.
