About this book

This book examines whether judicial independence and the rule of law can survive in Hong Kong under Chinese sovereignty. It examines their protection under the Basic Law, the institutional and individual independence of the judiciary, and the maintenance of the due process and a free press. It also scrutinizes the threats from the need to accommodate national security and wider political concerns. The assessments are set in the context of a comparison with the early years of British rule, and based on developments in the two years following the handover.
