New Book: Civil Unrest in Hong Kong : Law and Order from Historical and Cultural Perspectives (香港動盪 法與治的歷史與文化解讀)

<<香港動盪 法與治的歷史與文化解讀>>
(Civil Unrest in Hong Kong : Law and Order from Historical and Cultural Perspectives)
(Editors: Dr Michael Ng & Dr John David Wong)
HKU Press, published in May 2020
Description: By examining episodes of civil unrest and social movements in Hong Kong, this edited volume explores the notions of “the rule of law,” “law and order,” and “governance” from the historical and cultural perspectives. The volume does not regard the law as a static rulebook or system. Instead, it treats the law as a historical and cultural process whereby the different parties involved in social movements assert and justify their desired social, economic and political order over time. In addition to revisiting conventional narratives, and to a large extent turning them on their head, this volume also makes an important contribution by analysing issues of governance and law and order from interdisciplinary perspectives. Focusing on the local developments yet mindful of the international backdrop, this volume explores the imaginaries of law and order that these movements engendered, revealing a complex interplay among evolving notions of justice, governance, law and order and cultural creations throughout the under-explored history of instability in Hong Kong. Readers who have an interest in Asian studies, socio-political studies, legal studies, cultural studies and history would welcome this volume of unique interdisciplinarity.
