Asian history

FORTUNE'S BAZAAR is a story of empire, race and sex, and it offers startling insights into the ambiguous identity of Hong Kong to this day, just as its wonders may be on the verge of disappearing forever.

From Emanuel Raphael Belilio's arrival in Hong Kong in 1862 to the present day, FORTUNE'S BAZAAR examines how the region rose to a cosmopolitan port city and an incomparable global centre of business, culture and cuisine. The book goes behind the scenes erected by past histories, in which Hong Kong is portrayed as either a marvel of British administration or a symbol of China's humiliation by the West, to shine a light on the varied peoples who helped make Hong Kong; the people who built the tower blocks, ran the brothels, founded the banks and transformed this one-time fishing village into what it is today.
