1 Dimbleby, Jonathan The Last Governor - Chris Patten and the Handover of Hong Kong
London Little Brown 1997 0316640182 / 9780316640183 Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine price clipped dustjacket. xvi + 461 pages. 48 illustrations. During the final five years of British rule in Hong Kong, the broadcaster author witnessed history in the making. He was given unprecedented access to Chris Patten, the last governor of Britain's last significant colony, which enabled him to chart every twist and turn of an extraordinary diplomatic, political and personal drama. Patten, the former Conservative cabinet minister, was charged with a task unique in the history of British colonialism: to oversee the peaceful transfer of sovereign power. On 1 July 1997, Hong Kong was to pass into the hands of the last major communist force in the world, the People's Republic of China.
