Abstract

pro-Beijing forces during the C. Y. Leung administration, but unfortunately Loh has failed to Book reviews point out the achievement pf the underground CCP in their organized mass mobilization. The organization of the united front work orchestrated by the underground CCP in Hong Kong should ideally be addressed by Loh, but she did not do so. Since July 1, 1997, there has been more and more organizations and interest groups sprung up under the umbrella of the CCP in Hong Kong.

And her “run-of-the-mill” type of recommendations leaves much to be desired. It was extraordinary that the underground CCP remains extraordinarily active, but the book’s new edition clearly neglected its reality.
