This is Hong Kong, first published in 1965, captures the enchantment and the contrasts of Hong Kong in the ’60s. Roaring jets bring in the tourists, while bamboo rickshaws taxi them through exotic streets fragrant with incense, roasting chestnuts, and honey-glazed Peking duck. M. Sasek shows the sweeping panorama of gleaming Kowloon Bay framed by misty mountain ridges, then moves in for close-ups of laborers and hawkers, refugees from the mainland, sailors of flame-red junks, and the strange “water people” who, it is said, never set foot on dry land. This is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the 21st century, appearing on a “This is Hong Kong Today” page at the back of the book.
