Reviews 281 Y. M. Yeung and David K. Y. Chu, editors. Guangdong: Survey ofa Province Undergoing Rapid Change. Hong Kong: The Chinese University Press, 1994. xvi, 504 pp. In 1989 the Chinese University Press launched die first volume of The Other Hong Kong Report. This now annual series was designed to provide a counterbalance to the Hong Kong Government's annual report by bringing up issues and pointing out shortcomings overlooked in the official version of the events of the preceding year. With Guangdong: Survey ofa Province Undergoing Rapid Change, die Chinese University Press has extended this tradition of providing an alternate perspective by focusing on developments in its enormous next-door neighbor. In a sense this book is an English language companion to the two Chinese-language annual reports, Guangdong nianjian (Guangdong yearbook) and Guangdong tongji nianjian (Guangdong statistical yearbook), published by the Guangdong People's Press, and, by drawing on these works, makes much of their data accessible to diose who cannot read Chinese. Yet the time frame of the book is not a single year; since this is the first survey of the province that the Chinese University Press has published, die period under review encompasses the fifteen years
