Publisher Description

From the turbulent 1960s until today, Hong Kong has been a city shaped by civil disobedience. The latest wave of protests in Hong Kong's long history of public dissent culminated in the Occupy Central movement of 2014. What emerges from these grassroots movements is a unique Hong Kong identity, one shaped neither by Britain nor China. An insightful exploration of the historical and social stimuli and implications of civil disobedience, City of Protest offers a compelling look at the often-fraught relationship between politics and belonging, and a city's struggle to assert itself.

Review

"Required reading for those on both sides of the political spectrum . . . Dapiran achieves a clear-headedness lacking in much Hong Kong political debate." --South China Morning Post "Hong Kong is caught between China and an increasingly uncertain world. City of Protest is both an incisive analysis of the Umbrella Movement and an important record of Hong Kong's history of protest." --Ai Weiwei
