Empire’s End: A History of the Far East from High Colonialism to Hong Kong
John Keay. When Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, an empire ended, exactly 500 years after Vasco de Gama first sailed to the Asian mainland. In the process, the Orient has become a catchphrase for all things modern & dynamic. What are the legacies left in Asia by 500 years of colonial presence? This book braids the colonial experiences in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Vietnam & mainland China into a single colorful fabric. Explores the relationship between East & West, offering a magnificent work of history that takes the first full measure of an evolutionary process that pulled the world from the Age of Empire into the Asian Century.
