The Best China, an expression traditionally used to refer to the finest crockery brought out when one is entertaining special guests, has been adapted here to mean the Best Chinese Tradition of free-thinking discursive prose. This anthology of essays from Hong Kong and the diaspora, ranging across the past hundred and seventy years, records the intellectual ferment that has always characterised the city since its founding in 1842, sometimes restless and questioning, sometimes meditative and lyrical, always civilised, and buoyed by an all-pervasive and indomitable spirit of freedom.
