Hong Kong's Basic Law sits above all laws of the territory and is unique and important to both Hong Kong and China.

Since coming into effect in 1997, when the China resumed sovereignty over this Special Administrative Region, Hong Kong's jurisprudence has been shaped by decisions touching upon diverse areas including the criminal process, fair hearings, property rights, human rights and even social and economic policy.

This book, The Hong Kong Basic Law embodies the importance and supremacy of its subject matter. Masterfully composed by a learned and experienced author, the text brings together an immense breadth of material into a comprehensive and complete annotation.

It is organised according to the structure of the Basic Law, with each of the 160 Articles and three Annexes receiving individual and in-depth analysis. The author draws upon not only Hong Kong judicial decisions and commentary, but also scholarly writings and important comparative jurisprudence from other jurisdictions including the PRC, Macao and Taiwan.

The Hong Kong Basic Law is thoroughly researched and fully referenced to external and extrinsic sources, and also supplemented by appendices providing further crucial context as to the framework within which the Basic Law operates. This text is now the one-stop reference for practitioners, judges, jurists and interested laypersons wishing to research and understand Hong Kong's primary constitutional document.
