A cut above the usual coffee table book. Wonderful illustrations of Hong Kong over the years, and a fascinating if uncritical insight into the cultural and political challenges companies like Jardine's were faced with. Despite Maggie Keswick's dismissal of Jardine's fictional alter ego Noble House, there's more than enough stories of thrills and spills to keep James Clavell fans happy
