"One Country, Two Systems" in Crisis elucidates how China's intervention in Hong Kong after the British handover in 1984 has curtailed Hong Kong's civil liberties; how freedom of speech is at the mercy of the government; and how deception has turned the "Pearl of the Orient" into the rubber stamp of the Chinese Communist Party.


In the tumultuous negotiations of the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, the United Kingdom willingly signed over Hong Kong's reigns to the People's Republic of China, but with the presupposition that the PRC would faithfully implement the principle of "one country, two systems" for the following fifty years. Yet since the handover in 1997, the PRC has failed to allow Hong Kong a higher degree of autonomy. "One Country, Two Systems" in Crisis elucidates how China's intervention has curtailed Hong Kong's civil liberties; how freedom of speech is at the mercy of the government; and how deception has turned the "Pearl of the Orient" into the rubber stamp of the Chinese Communist Party.
