Hong Kong Media and Asia's Cold War Online Book Talk


Hong Kong Media and Asia's Cold War is the first systematic study of Hong Kong's cultural Cold War. Based on untapped archival materials, contemporary sources, and numerous interviews with filmmakers, magazine editors and student activists, this book sheds light on the contest among various Cold War powers to mobilize Hong Kong's cinema and print media to win the hearts and minds of ethnic Chinese in Southeast Asia and around the world.
