This collection of articles treats the relationship between the press and politics in Hong Kong from 1967 to 1997. Making use of critical event analysis, content analysis, as well as survey and interview methods, these articles explicate the role of the press in various political cases. The case studies include the 1967 Riot, the Golden Jubilee School Case, the Illegal Immigrant Incident, the initial Sino-British Negotiations, the first Legislative Council Election, the Daya Bay Incident, the political reform in the mid-1980s, the Tiananmen Square Crackdown, Chris Patten's political reform package in the early 1990s, and the arrest of Xi Yang. The legitimation of the Legislative Council by the press is also documented, and surveys are done to chart the changing relations between the political system and the media system, as well as the cultural identities of the Hong Kong people on the eve of the 1997 handover.
