about

In 1899, a year after the Convention of Peking leased the New Territories to Britain, the British moved to establish control. This triggered resistance by some of the population of the New Territories. There ensued six days of fighting with heavy Chinese casualties. This truly forgotten war has been thoroughly researched for the first time and recounted in lively style by Patrick Hase, an expert on the people and history of the New Territories.

Patrick H. Hase is the author of Custom, Land and Livelihood in Rural South China: The Traditional Land Law of Hong Kong's New Territories, 1750-1950.

Editorial Reviews

"The Six-Day War of 1899 is an important book for scholars who are interested in colonialism - and not just the Hong Kong variety. Hase explores the 'hidden' history of Britain's occupation and subsequent pacification of a rural Chinese district. This is a riveting account of a colonial encounter." - James L. Watson, Fairbank Professor of Chinese Society, Harvard University
