This is a collection of 13 papers presented at a conference held at The Chinese University of Hong Kong to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies at the University. The book spotlights on three major themes of change and challenge faced by Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific region: economic globalization, political and social change, and regional patterns of transformation. It not only encourages a retrospective learning from past failures, but also tries to anticipate inviting and daunting challenges of a new century and millennium.
