'One Country, Two Systems' in Crisis elucidates how China's intervention in Hong Kong after the British handover in 1984 has curtailed Hong Kong's civil liberties; how freedom of speech is at the mercy of the government; and how deception has turned the 'Pearl of the Orient' into the rubber stamp of the Chinese Communist Party.
