'Clear, insightful, thorough and persuasive. It provides first-hand observations of the movement and its different groups and currents which help the reader embrace the diversity and complexity of the unrest. Without a doubt, this is the best book on Hong Kong's astonishing revolt.'-- Bruno Jetin, Associate Professor at University of Sorbonne Paris Nord
'A timely must-read for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the background, dynamics, and prospects of the ongoing 2019-20 Hong Kong protests.'-- Professor Poe Yu-ze Wan, National Sun Yat-sen University, Taiwan
'A brilliant assessment of the Hong Kong Revolt. Guided by Marxist theory, Au criticises both the Beijing party dictatorship and western capitalist propaganda.'-- Bodo Zeuner, Professor in Political Science, Free University of Berlin
'Hong Kong's revolt against increasing control by Beijing stands no chance of success unless it finds a counterpart on the mainland. This book is the best and most up-to-date guide to the complexity of this issue and the ongoing movement, from a progressive perspective.'-- Professor Gilbert Achcar, SOAS, University of London
