Had to purchase this book for this professor's class in graduate school. We never used it. Talk about a conflict of interest! SMH.

Hong Kong peoples have been indifferent in airing their views based on documentary evidence or empirical researches of the Hong Kong Police Force as a whole. In-depth scholarly studies have been rare in bringing about a true picture pertaining to the factual developments, either historically or post-colonially, of this oldest Police Force in the Far East. Mr. Allan JIAO has filled in the vacumn in allowing the picture to be exposed openly or publicly against the assorted backdrops. The Hong Kong of thirty years ago was completely different from the Hong Kong of this millenium. As a serving officer in the HKP, Mr. JIAO's descriptive studies serve as both a refresher and a reminder on the organizational philosophies in essence as well as policing cultures in particular. A must read for every concientious member of the HKP whose organizational behaviours have significantly impacted on the socio-ethical developments of Hong Kong.
