Highlights of Hong Kong’s History – International Herald Tribune

To mark the 10 year anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to China, The International Herald Tribune gives a great overview with Highlights of Hong Kong’s History that starts from China’s signing of the Nanjing Treaty and passing over Hong Kong to Great Britain in 1842, all the way to Donald Tsang’s election in March of 2007.

The Highlights also feature two videos and a slideshow, including Hong Kong Handover: Ten Years Later, that discusses issues ranging from Hong Kong’s changes since the handover, as well as problems with its alleged democracy.
