Rachel Cartland’s new book tells how her life was transformed as a result of being one of the few female expatriates recruited to the Hong Kong Government’s elite administrative grade in the 70s and also describes the evolution of Hong Kong over the past forty years. She evaluates the key events that have rocked Hong Kong and provides new insights into how modern Hong Kong has been shaped.
