Quoted in The Australian / by Antony Dapiran

Rowan Callick quotes from the book in his major feature article in The Australian newspaper "Hong Kong: One China, two pathways":

"Antony Dapiran is an Australian lawyer working in Hong Kong whose new book to be published by Penguin next month is titled City of Protest: A Recent History of Dissent in Hong Kong.

He says: “In a city whose population identifies itself — at least vis a vis its sovereign, the PRC — by reference to the rights and freedoms it enjoys which the rest of China’s population does not, protest is an embodiment of that identity, embracing as it does the freedoms of speech, expression and assembly.”

He says the authorities’ tolerance — or not — of such protests serves as a barometer of the health of the unique “one country, two systems” formula."
