Hong Kong University Press was established in 1956. Since then it has grown from publishing a few titles, primarily the work of the University's faculty, into a publisher issuing close to 50 new titles each year. From its very first book, it has been a bilingual publisher of works both in English and Chinese. Our authors now come from all the universities of Hong Kong, and from Mainland China, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, also from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada and other countries.

Hong Kong University Press plays a unique and growing role in the intellectual discourse of Hong Kong and its broader region. We publish the majority of our books in English and strive to achieve for them the widest international distribution. Yet, rather than imposing the homogenizing changes usually considered necessary to maximize sales in rich country markets, we respect and sustain the intellectual and cultural variety of our authors and their work. The Press values intra-regional conversation as highly as exchanges with North America and Europe.

The Press's publishing for international readers is focused on cultural studies, film and media studies, Chinese history and culture. Noting Hong Kong's special characteristics, we publish in language and linguistics emphasizing Asian varieties of English and Cantonese. For readers in Hong Kong and those elsewhere interested in our remarkable city, we publish on its history, law, politics, economy, society and literature. Also for Hong Kong, we publish both in Chinese and English for such professions as education, social work, law, medicine, real estate and construction.

Throughout its existence the Press has remained an integral part of the University, overseen by a university committee and having as its central mission the publication of high quality scholarship that contributes both to the quality of debate and ideas and to the wider understanding of Hong Kong and its region.

    • 定價:1964元  優惠價:791552 
    • Postwar Hong Kong cinema played an active role in building the colony’s community in the 1950s and 1960s. To Jing Jing Chang, the screening of movies in postwar Hong Kong was a process of showing the filmmakers’ visions for Hong Kong society and simultaneously an attempt to conceal their anxieties and mask their political agenda. It was a time when the city was a site of intense ideological struggles among the colonial government, Chinese Nationalists, and Communist sympathizers. The medium of f

    • 定價:1919元  優惠價:791516 
    • The history of Qing palace eunuchs is defined by a tension between the role eunuchs were meant to play and the life they intended to live. This study tells the story of how a complicated and much-maligned group of people struggled to insert a degree of agency into their lives. Rulers of the Qing dynasty were determined to ensure the eunuchs’ subservience and to limit their influence by imposing a management style based upon strict rules, corporal punishment, and collective responsibility.

    • 作者:麥欣恩-著  出版社:香港大學出版社  出版日:2019/02/22
    • 定價:948元  優惠價:79749 
    • 在1950年代,冷戰形勢令中國門戶對外關閉,香港取代上海成為最重要的華文電影製作中心。新加坡與香港均位於竹幕中國之外,構築了「海外華人」的共同屬性。香港與星馬當時同為英國殖民地,兩地在政治及軍事體制上形成連帶;在文化上,星馬地區是那個年代香港電影及文藝作品最大的市場,冷戰時代的香港電影往往呈現出對於星馬地區猶如親屬般親密的「文化想像」,一條「電影文化環」就這樣把星港聯繫起來。本書採取文化史分析角度,兼具電影文本細讀,探討電懋(國泰)、光藝兩間片廠所製作的六部星馬題材電影,重新檢視這道星港電影文化環的形成和斷裂的先兆,以及香港電影的主體性如何透過他者的凝視而孵生。

    • Chinese Discourses on Happiness
    • 作者:Gerda Wielande;Derek Hird  出版社:香港大學出版社  出版日:2019/01/11
    • 定價:2032元  優惠價:881788 
    • Happiness is on China’s agenda. From Xi Jinping’s “Chinese Dream” to online chat forums, the conspicuous references to happiness are hard to miss. This groundbreaking volume analyzes how different social groups make use of the concept and shows how closely official discourses on happiness are intertwined with popular sentiments. The Chinese Communist Party’s attempts to define happiness and well-being around family-focused Han Chinese cultural traditions clearly strike a chord with the wider pop

    • Chinese Indonesians in Post-Suharto Indonesia:Democratisation and Ethnic Minorities
    • 作者:Wu-Ling Chong  出版社:香港大學出版社  出版日:2019/01/11
    • 定價:2032元  優惠價:881788 
    • Selfish, obscenely rich, insular, and opportunistic: these remain how Chinese minorities in Indonesia are perceived by the indigenous population. However, far from being passive victims of discrimination and marginalisation, Chong presents a forceful case in which Chinese Indonesians possess the agency to shape their future in the country, particularly in the changing political, business, and socio-cultural environment after the fall of Suharto. While a lack of good governance that promotes the

    • 定價:2032元  優惠價:881788 
    • The Cosmopolitan Dream presents the broad patterns in the transformations of mainland Chinese masculinity over recent years, covering both representations (in film, fiction, and on television) and the lived experiences of Chinese men on four continents. Exposure to transnational influences has made Chinese notions of masculinity more cosmopolitan than ever before, yet the configurations of these hybrid masculinities retain the imprint of Chinese historical models.With the increasing interconnect

    • 定價:1783元  優惠價:881569 
    • This is the first book-length study of the development of civility in Chinese societies. Although some social scientists and political philosophers have discussed civility, none has defined it as an analytical tool to systematically measure attitudes and behavior, and few have applied it to a non-Western society. By comparing the development of civility in mainland China and Taiwan, Civility and Its Development: The Experiences of China and Taiwan analyzes the social conditions needed for civili

    • The “ASEAN Way” is based on the principle of consensus; any individual member state effectively has a veto over any proposal with which it disagrees. Dividing ASEAN and Conquering the South China Sea analyzes how China uses its influence to divide ASEAN countries in order to prevent them from acting collectively to resolve their territorial disputes with China in the South China Sea. Using comparative case studies of China’s relations with Cambodia, the Philippines, and Myanmar, O’Neill argues t

    • In Paths of Justice, Johannes Chan illuminates fundamental themes and basic values in Hong Kong’s legal system by using his own experience and drawing on interesting and important cases. The book explains and demystifies some of the most frequently asked questions about the law: How does a lawyer defend someone who is guilty? Does the law favour the rich and the resourceful? Is there a duty to obey the law in all circumstances? How can human rights and national security coexist in balance if the

    • The Private Side of the Canton Trade, 1700-1840:Beyond the Companies
    • 作者:Paul A. Van Dyke;Susan E. Schopp  出版社:香港大學出版社  出版日:2018/07/20
    • 定價:2032元  優惠價:881788 
    • It is not often recognized that China was one of the few places in the early modern world where all merchants had equal access to the market. This study shows that private traders, regardless of the volume of their trade, were granted the same privileges in Canton as the large East India companies. All of these companies relied, to some extent, on private capital to finance their operations. Without the investments from individuals, the trade with China would have been greatly hindered.

    • 南丫沙埔拼圖:考古調查與景觀重建
    • 作者:Mick Atha;葉可詩-著  出版社:香港大學出版社  出版日:2018/07/20
    • 定價:768元  優惠價:88676 
    • 香港擁有許多位於沙灘後方、資源豐富的考古遺址。其中,南丫島的沙埔長期以來一直受到考古學家們的注意,然而到目前為止,尚未有學者就該區域有全面研究的著述發表。《南丫沙埔拼圖》以沙埔六千多年包容各種人類活動的多時期社會景觀為框架,呈上第一項跨時期的持續分析。綜合數十年早期田野工作及Mick Atha(范旼澔)和葉可詩(Kennis Yip)在2008-2010年期間發掘的大量考證,兩位作者得以重建沙埔社會的不同歷史時期。該遺址出土的文物,包括一些屬於香港範圍的僅有發現,投影出古代沙埔居民以不同方式與環境互動。青銅時代的人類高度掌握石英裝飾品生產和冶金技術等證據,顯示當時的手工藝正在逐步提升和變得專門。與此同時,社會變得複雜、競爭更形劇烈。到了六朝至唐代時期,沙埔成為官府掌控的窰式鹽業中心。在19世紀,沙埔的漁、農業社會羣體更成為提供香港市區食品和燃料的重要供應者。透過一個特殊考古遺址的鏡頭,《南丫沙埔拼圖》講述了一個扣人心弦的故事:人類在不斷地重新塑造自己的生活。

    • 定價:1580元  優惠價:881390 
    • Almost right from the introduction of baseball to Japan the sport was regarded as qualitatively different from the original American model. This vision of Japanese baseball associates the sport with steadfast devotion (magokoro) and the values of the samurai class in the code of Bushidō, in which greatness is achieved through hard work under the tutelage of a selfless master.In Contesting the Myths of Samurai Baseball Keaveney analyzes the persistent appeal of such mythologizing, arguing that th

    • A City Mismanaged traces the collapse of good governance in Hong Kong, explains its causes, and exposes the damaging impact on the community’s quality of life. Leo Goodstadt argues that the current well-being and future survival of Hong Kong have been threatened by disastrous policy decisions made by chief executives and their principal officials. Individual chapters look at the most shocking examples of mismanagement: the government’s refusal to implement the Basic Law in full; official relucta
