This book recounts the previously-untold history of Hong Kong's deeply flawed but spectacularly successful tax system. It is a story shedding new light on the political process in Hong Kong, and on relations between Hong Kong and London. Given the successes of Hong Kong's tax system, it is also a story which governments and policy-makers everywhere might find instructive.
