Patten provides a unique insight into the pre-handover period and the uphill struggle of negotiating with 'Peking'. Over the course of 150 years of British rule, it wasn't until 1984 that the idea of electing a Chief Executive was spoken about. Previously the British government appointed a governor with not an ounce of democracy present.
Now protesters sprawl the streets of Hong Kong demanding the promise of universal suffrage to be upheld, a concept that was suggested by Patten as an avid democrat and someone who is still very much respected in the East.
Probably the best book on East/West politics, market relationships and the progression of Asian economies written recently.
