The Dragon and the Crown:
"The Dragon and the Crown is a fascinating account of the twentieth-century history of Hong Kong.
Stanley Kwan is the master of the telling detail as he recounts the saga of his extended family, torn
between capitalist, colonialist Hong Kong and the Chinese Communist revolution."
Author of Red China Blues and Beijing Confidential
"This book makes an important contribution to Hong Kong's business history and provides an insider's
account of the often uncomfortable transformation of the Hang Seng Bank from an old-fashioned
currency and gold dealer into an outstanding financial institution..."
Author of Uneasy Partners and Profits, Politics and Panics
"The Dragon and the Crown brings me back to a Hong Kong of 40-50 years ago. I have personally
encountered or heard about experiences similar to those of Mr. Kwan and his family... This is a most
valuable book on the history of Hong Kong."
Senator of Canada
