The Earliest Political Parties in Hong Kong - Edmond Tsang
In his book The Earliest Political Parties in Hong Kong: The Reform Club and Civic Association, Edmond Tsang overturns popular but erroneous views on Hong Kong’s political history Tsang provides the first in-depth study of the two most influential parties of postwar Hong Kong, which had essential roles in promoting political, economic and social reforms in the colony. Tsang’s illuminating talk will refresh your understanding of the relationship between the colonial government and the metropolitan state, the nature of postwar colonies, and the forgotten significance of the Reform Club and Civic Association.
This session will be conducted in Cantonese.
Edmond Tsang, Cantopop writer, arranger and producer, has worked with various Hong Kong artists, including Andy Lau, Hacken Lee, Joey Yung and Denise Ho.
