Repositioning the Hong Kong government : social foundations and political challenges by Stephen Wing-kai Chiu( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to popular mythology that upheavals of epic proportions would mark the end of the millennium, the twenty-first century actually dawned far less spectacularly than the doomsayers had predicted. Yet, it proved no less eventful as we all know. In particular, the world has witnessed a number of dramatic changes over the past few decades that have reverberated throughout the globe the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact bloc undoubtedly the most dramatic. The acceleration of the process of global integration turns out to be equally consequential, especially in the realms of economic flows since roughly the same time as the fall of the Berlin Wall. Stepping into the new century, we also witnessed the unprecedented September 11 terrorist attack upon the USA homeland in 2001 and rising tension between the Islamic and Anglo-American worlds

East Asia's new democracies : deepening, reversal, non-liberal alternatives by Yin-wah Chu( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors, who are foremost experts in their fields, examine the roles performed by civil society, social classes, and strategic groups, as well as the intertwining of values and interests in the transition to, consolidation of, and reversal from democracy. They also evaluate the extent to which these new democracies have facilitated regional peace, helped extend social welfare benefits, bolstered poverty alleviation, and upheld the rule of law and human rights. Grounding their analyses in the historical development of these societies, and/or examining them through the comparative strategy they also explore the desirability of liberal democracy, whether in the subjective assessment of the Asian people or in relation to the social-political challenges faced by these Asian countries."
Hong Kong movers and stayers : narratives of family migration by Janet W Salaff( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Half a million Hong Kong residents fled their homeland during the thirteen years before Hong Kong was returned to China in 1997 - and nearly half of those returned within several years of leaving. Filled with detailed, first-hand stories of nine Hong Kong families over nearly two decades, Hong Kong Movers and Stayers is an exhaustive and intimate look at the forces behind Hong Kong families' successful and failed efforts at migration and settlement. This multi-faceted study was begun in 1991, when migration was attributed primarily to the political anxieties of the time and the notion that Hong Kong residents were seeking a better life in the West. Defining migration as a process, not a single act of leaving, Hong Kong Movers and Stayers provides an antidote to ethnocentric and simplistic theories by uncovering migration stories as they relate to social structures and social capital. With an approach that melds survey analysis, personal biography, and sociology, Hong Kong Movers and Stayers provides a depth of understanding by comparing multiple families and gives voice to the interplay of diverse family roles, gender, and age as motivating factors in migration
Security and migration in Asia : the dynamics of securitisation by Melissa Curley( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Security and Migration in Asia explore how various forms of unregulated and illegal forms of human movement within Asia and beyond the region have come to be treated as 'security' issues, and whether and how a 'securitisation' framework enables a more effective response to them. The process and theory of 'securitisation' and 'desecuritisation' have been developed within the international relations literature by the so-called Copenhagen school scholars, including Barry Buzan and Ole Waever among others." "This book provides insights into contemporary forms of illegal migration, under conditions of globalisation, and makes a contribution to the literature in international relations and migration studies."--BOOK JACKET
