In the 1970s-80s, Hong Kong, the great open place, had a special moment, educating mainlanders, just opening, how to be like Hong Kong. They succeeded. For Hong Kong, no longer unique, what next? Able social scientists explore, with perspective. (Ezra F Vogel, Henry Ford II Professor of Social Sciences Emeritus, Harvard University)
