Summary "Until the mid-1980s, when it became clear that Hong Kong would return to China, Hongkongers tended to identify themselves as something other than mainland Chinese. Now that Hong Kong is again a part of China, the local population have had to come to terms with their previously suppressed Chinese identity."--BOOK JACKET. "This book is concerned with how the identity categories of Hongkongers and mainlanders have changed in the 1990s. The analysis focuses on the role, in this process, of the popular media in general and of television in particular. The author looks specifically at the relationship between 'television ideologies' and 'cultural identities', and explores the role of television in the process of identity formation and maintenance as illustrated by the case of Hong Kong television."--BOOK JACKET.
