The 1997 Hong Kong handover was no laughing matter...or maybe it was!
Read the cartoons that chronicled the End of Empire, in this special 20th anniversary edition.In March 1997 controversial, award-winning cartoonist Larry Feign was commissioned by a British newspaper to chronicle an unprecedented moment in history—The Reunification of China! The End of the British Empire!—and all the rumors, worst-case scenarios and unforgettable events:
Pre-handover supermarket specials
Last-minute pregnancies before the one-child policy kicked in
The greatest onslaught of tacky souvenirs in history
The invasion of the foreign journalists
Britain finally lifts a finger for Hong Kong
This book contains the entire series, plus cartoons from Time Magazine, Geo Magazine and several previously unpublished cartoons, as well as A Politically Incorrect View of the Handover. You'll laugh almost as loud as Chinese leaders laugh at Hong Kong people's calls for democracy.
