The stories of expatriates in Hong Kong - the most dynamic, dramatic and diverse city in the Asia-Pacific region - come to life in this book. Why did they come? Why do they stay? How did Hong Kong change them and their view of the world? What did they gain and what did they lose? Human beings are on the move, driven by economic globalisation, political persecution, love or simple curiosity; and this global flow defines the age in which we live. From these expat stories, larger themes loom: identities transformed; racism, naked and clothed; blended relationships; and the tensions and tolerance engendered through peoples, languages and cultures in contact.
