American foreign policy in Asia has long been preoccupied with mainland China. But the end of the Cold War and the 1989 Tiananmen massacre have forced the U.S. to think in new ways about the "other" Chinese in Hong Kong and Taiwan. The events at Tiananmen dramatize the human rights dilemma inherent in Hong Kong's scheduled 1997 return to Beijing. And they highlight Taiwan's rapid transformation, initiated in the 1980s, into a freer, democratic society. At the end of the Cold War, Nancy Bernkopf Tucker asserts, these developments challenge the United States to take more seriously than ever its relations with Taiwan and Hong Kong - to approach both not as strategic players in the game of dominoes but as significant forces in their own right. No other study so clearly focuses American thinking on relations with Hong Kong and Taiwan. Surveying post-1945 U.S. ties with both areas in the context of earlier historical interaction, Tucker explores commerce and trade, military imperatives and political priorities, as well as cultural controversies over Westernization and tradition, bringing to light trends and events in the first comprehensive analysis of these relationships. Tucker reexamines Washington's continual efforts to sustain its uncertain friends through economic assistance and military protection in spite of their sometimes divergent goals and antagonistic policies. The U.S. was not above using its Asian clients to further selfish national interests or cold war strategies but in its dealings with the Nationalist Chinese frequently found itself manipulated rather than dominant. In Hong Kong, Tucker probes the changing dimensions of American support for British control of its Crown Colony, the pivotal role of the United States in Hong Kong's burgeoning economy, and Washington's use of Hong Kong as a strategic foothold and a base for espionage. Tucker also investigates the impact of immigrants from Taiwan and Hong Kong in the U.S., ranging from achievements in art and scholarship to gang violence tied to drugs, illegal immigration and politics. The cast of characters in this drama includes political figures - Truman, McCarthy, Eisenhower, Zhou Enlai, Kennedy, Nixon, Deng Xiaoping, Lee Teng-hui, Chiang Kai-shek, and his son and successor Chiang Ching-kuo - but also artists, writers, economists, and soldiers, who enliven the tale as Tucker gracefully and crisply moves through war, revolution, economic dislocation, political upheaval, and cultural confrontation. In her final chapters, Tucker vividly outlines the economic and political challenges posed by the emergence of a Greater China. She urges Washington to focus on the region with new intensity and offers balanced guidelines for immediate and future American policy. Scholars and policy makers interested in the economic "miracle" of Taiwan and Hong Kong, in the rise of the Asian-Pacific community, and in Washington's role in shaping it, will welcome her original research and insights.

This unique collection of translations of Chinese stories explores the manifestations of "self" and the impact of place upon Chinese identity, found both on the mainland and in other Chinese communities such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Though sharing a common cultural heritage, these four communities have different social, political, and economic realities; realities which are reflected in the stories' themes of self, identity, gender, and location. The stories not only demonstrate the diverse creativity of contemporary Chinese authors, they also express the aspirations and fears felt by many who live in places and circumstances where the mass media are controlled by the state and opportunities for open discussion are few and far between. Translated into English for the first time, the stories in A Place of One's Own demonstrate the exciting experimentation unfolding in the genre of the modern Chinese short story. Individually, the stories stand as important contributions to contemporary Chinese literature in translation; collectively as a comprehensive rendering of the transformation of Chinese society today.

The issues surrounding Hong Kong's global position and international links grow increasingly complex by the day as the process of Hong Kong's transformation from a British colony to a Chinese Special Administration Region unfolds. This volume addresses a number of questions relating to this process. How international is Hong Kong? What are its global and international dimensions? How important are these dimensions to its continued success? How will these dimensions change, especially beyond the sphere of economics? Is Hong Kong's internationalization, defined in terms of its willingness to embrace international values and its capacity to maintain its international presence, at risk? These questions are presented as they pertain to the changing situation; relations between mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong; the positions of Australia, Canada and the United States on Hong Kong; internalization of international legal values; Americanization vs. Asianization; linkages to the world through Guangdong; strategies to emigrate overseas, cultural internationalization; media internationalization and universities within the global economy.

Barbara Mittler's book is the first comprehensive monographic study of China's New Music written in a Western language. It deals with two key points of contention: the effects of politics on the development of Chinese New Music, and the importance of China's indigenous musical traditions for the development of her New Music. In many ways, it is a handbook to New Chinese Music as it provides biographical and musicological sketches of the greater number of China's composers. As a reference work it will thus be of interest to libraries as well as to musicologists and music impressarios. The book is unique as a comparative study of New Chinese Music under three different political systems. Its conclusions, the discovery of (and explanations for) inherent similarities in those three New Musics will be of interest to sinologists in the field of politics and cultural studies.
