About the Author

Peter E. Hamilton is an assistant professor in modern Chinese history at Trinity College Dublin.


This is a magnificent book on how Hong Kong helped create concepts of the global. It is a very important contribution to our understanding of how postwar capitalism intensified and expanded. -- Odd Arne Westad, author of The Cold War: A World History
Hamilton highlights the dynamic, multilayered commercial, financial, family, and cultural networks between Hong Kong and the U.S., and unravels the deep-rooted ties established by students, industrialists, bankers, and academics over decades and generations. A sensitive, scholarly, and articulate study of migration, global capitalism, and U.S.-China and U.S.-Hong Kong relations. So timely. -- Elizabeth Sinn, author of Pacific Crossing: California Gold, Chinese Migration, and the Making of Hong Kong
An ambitious, provocative, and pathbreaking interpretation of the contributions of Hong Kong business elites to Sino-U.S. relations in the twentieth century. This work represents a major contribution to both international and economic history by raising questions and illuminating the nature of transnational networks and business institutions. -- Priscilla Roberts, coeditor of Hong Kong in the Cold War
