The Politics of National History in Post-Colonial Hong Kong
Kan, Flora L. F.
Curriculum Journal, v22 n1 p29-42 Mar 2011
This article examines how interest groups in Hong Kong have politicised national history, an unpopular school subject, for their own political ends and allied themselves with the PRC against the SAR government and its policy of not making it a single, independent, compulsory core subject in the school curriculum. The article argues that this has been made possible by the "One country, two systems" administrative structure. (Contains 2 notes.)
