Combining a range of content with self-reflexive examination by scholars and practitioners, this edited volume interrogates the contemporary significance of the avant-garde. Rather than focusing on a particular region, period, or movement, the contributors bring together case studies to examine what constitutes the avant-garde canon.

As a former British colony (1842-1997) and then a Special Administrative Region (from 1997 onwards) practicing the "One Country Two Systems" policy with the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong has witnessed at all times how relations are formed, dissolved and refashioned amidst changing powers, identities and narratives, given that the decisions that had moved the city in the past were not made upon the consensus of the local population. In its post-handover, post-hangover years, the 2014 Umbrella Movement and the 2019 Anti-Extradition Bill Protests among other events have revealed the multiple appearances and connotations of Hong Kong's local. At the intersections between real-life events, cultural production and consumption, the book is an interdisciplinary study that extracts and examines"local relations" through the lens of the things and places that stand or that have once stood for Hong Kong's "local". With cultural icons as an agency, the book offers lessons to learn from the city by opening up manifold postcolonial perspectives to confront and interrogate the volatile experiences in the new millennia - unprecedented since the Cold War era - shared by Hong Kong and other regions. After all, what does it mean, or take, to live in the contemporary world when the local, global and national are constantly given new meanings?

When people look at success stories among postcolonial nations, the focus almost always turns to Asia, where many cities in former colonies have become key locations of international commerce and culture. This book brings together a stellar group of scholars from a number of disciplines to explore the rise of Asian cities, including Singapore, Macau, Hong Kong, and more. Dealing with history, geography, culture, architecture, urbanism, and other topics, the book attempts to formulate a new understanding of what makes Asian cities such global leaders.

This vibrant, exciting and often overwhelming city offers an extraordinary diversity of attractions - both urban and rural - for visitors. This guide explores Hong Kong's best restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars, with an in-depth look at all types of Chinese cuisine. It also includes a round-up of the best festivals and events in the area, from rugby tournaments to arts festivals, and, or course, Chinese New Year. Though best known for its shopping and eating opportunities, Hong Kong offers much, whether you want to soak up some scenery or try out an activity such as kung fu or tai chi.
