Hong Kong Diner is the first cookbook to explore the east-meets-west diner food crossover of Hong Kong. The definitive ‘commuter town’, where long-haul travellers break their flight for a night on the tiles, Hong Kong’s cuisine draws on everything from classic Chinese to America's west coast to French Vietnamese. By necessity it’s a fast-moving, cosmopolitan culture, a city with countless styles of dining and diverse ingredients. Chef Jeremy Pang grew up in Hong Kong and for him, Hong Kong Diner represents comfort food at its finest: Beef brisket noodle soup sits alongside Peanut butter French toast, Claypot rice beside Savoury doughnuts, Pineapple buns next to Milk tea. In it, Pang expertly brings together in this book the very best dishes that the city has to offer. Featuring over 70 recipes including irresistible street food like dumplings, buns and baos, tofu rolls and BBQ, through hotpots, rice pots, fried noodles, as well as desserts and drinks, the secrets of Hong Kong’s cafés and food stalls are brought to vivid life in this unique book. With its cool aesthetic, vibrant photography and cutting-edge design, Hong Kong Diner is inspired by an exciting, unconventional place, where western sensibilities and food tastes overlap with an ancient cuisine, and whose influence is being seen in restaurants and dining scenes the world over.

Materially grounded analysis of contemporary film, literature, and music in Hong Kong that resists the superficial stereotypes of the “global city.” Hong Kong is often cast in the role of the paradigmatic “global city,” epitomizing postmodernism and globalization, and representing a vision of a cosmopolitan global and capitalist future. In Paradigm City, Janet Ng takes us past the obsession with 1997—the year of Hong Kong’s return to China—to focus on the complex uses and meanings of urban space in Hong Kong in the period following that transfer. She demonstrates how the design and ordering of the city’s space and the practices it supports inculcates a particular civic aesthetic among Hong Kong’s population that corresponds to capitalist as well as nationalist ideologies. Ng’s insightful connections between contemporary film, literature, music and other media and the actual spaces of the city—such as parks, shopping malls, and domestic spaces—provide a rich and nuanced picture of Hong Kong today. “…Paradigm City is pleasant reading and conveys quite comprehensively the complex socio-political dynamics of a city that has yet to find a clear identity in the midst of a seemingly never-ending transition.” — China Journal “…covers much in a quite interesting way.” — CHOICE

This volume offers the first comprehensive survey of the cinema of Evans Chan, a New York–based playwright, author, and filmmaker whose acclaimed films include To Liv(e), The Map of Sex and Love, and Datong. In this collection of essays on Chan's documentary and feature films seven experts on cultural and film studies examine the unique blending of fictional representation, historical investigation, and critical essayism that characterize Chan'soeuvre. They discuss how Chan’s work brings out the contradictory nature of the distant and recent past through his exploration of Hong Kong's rapid transformation before and after reunification with China in 1997. The volume concludes with an interview with Evans Chan on his work to date and includes two DVDs containing five of his most important films. The book will appeal to scholars and students who are interested in China and Hong Kong cinema, postcolonial studies, cultural studies, and diaspora studies. "Covering a broad range of topics and issues that shed light on the aesthetic, sociopolitical and intellectual dimensions of Chan's work, the individual chapters contribute to a collective reflection on the formal qualities of Chan's cinematic art, in particular his creative use of the film essay as a mode of artistic expression. The essays have sought out the latent aesthetic and intellectual impulses that inform Chan's cinematic vision."—Vivian Lee, author of Hong Kong Cinema Since 1997: The Post-Nostalgic Imagination "This fascinating anthology is a much-needed examination of Chan's eminent yet underappreciated cinema. The volume illuminates his filmmaking from a number of angles, enriching our understanding of his complex engagement with Chinese politics, history, and the essay film. Capped by a comprehensive interview with Chan himself, this indispensable volume does full justice to one of Hong Kong's most literate and literary filmmakers.”—Gary Bettinson, author of The Sensuous Cinema of Wong Kar-wai and editor of the journal Asian Cinema

Orientation: A Journey is an autobiographical account of a group of African American tourists who traveled on a tour to Europe, Asia and North Africa. The writer inserts fictional situations in the book to enable the reader to view the bareback narrative in relation to, or as a divergence from the autobiographical portions of the book. As a reality, these segments in the book are its core that lends itself to the fiction he creates, which propels the writer's rush of awareness, and bares his accelerated consciousness, enabling him to carry the fictitious segments of the book on a non-liner, narrative, course.
