The rule of law in China and comparative perspectives
"Hong Kong is widely regarded as an exemplar of authoritarian jurisdictions with a positive history of adhering to Rule of Law shaped governance systems. British Hong Kong provides a remarkable story of the effective development and consolidation of such a system, which has continued to apply since 1997 when it became the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) within the People's Republic of China (PRC). This book adopts a fresh approach in examining the evolution of Hong Kong's political-legal experience. It establishes that these prominent governance achievements were built on particular British constitutional foundations forged over many centuries. The work shows how the analysis of the British theorist Albert Dicey and, in particular, 'Diceyan Constitutionalism' was fundamental, within the pivotal context of 'Chinese Familism', in shaping the development of governance institutions and operational procedures within the new British Colony"-- Provided by publisher.
