Hong Kong is long viewed as a center of global trade, but it is often being overlooked the role of transnational Chinese elite who enabled close ties between Hong Kong and the west. In this book talk webinar, Peter Hamilton, author of Made in Hong Kong: Transpacific Networks and a New History of Globalization, will take us back to the origins of US-China trade in the modern era, the role of transnational Chinese elites who facilitated China's reengagement with global capitalism.

There's no better time than now to discuss Hong Kong's role in postwar globalization and the future of US-China-Hong Kong trade. Reserve your spot today!
