This is the first systematic study of the nature, operation and contribution of entrepreneurship to the growth of Hong Kong. From a new entrepreneurial perspective of economic development, the author argues that the success of Hong Kong is attributable principally to adaptive entrepreneurship: product imitation; small scale enterprise; subcontracting and spatial arbitrage.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a boldly revisionist work. The nine contributors...have essentially set out to redefine the project of Hong Kong history, challenging conventional understandings, charting new research directions and, in the process, greatly complicating our picture of British colonialism in Hong Kong.."
