Summary "This book provides a comprehensive look to many public law issues that arise from the Chinese "One country, two systems" implementation in Macau, and in Hong Kong. Noble and fully contemporary themes such as autonomy models and fundamental rights are thoroughly approached with a multilayered analysis encompassing both Western and Chinese views and an extensive comparative law acquis is also brought forward. Furthermore, relevant issues on international law, criminal law, and historical and comparative evolutions and interactions are laid down in this panoramic yet comprehensive book. Definitively a must have in a modern research to Macau, Hong Kong and China legal-constitutional issues and a key work on autonomy models." --Book Jacket.
