Books of Note : Borrowed place, borrowed time,
borrowed freedom, borrowed human rights

【明報專訊】The first edition of Richard Hughes' Borrowed Place, Borrowed Time: Hong Kong and Its Many Faces came out in 1968 in the wake of the 1967 riots. Its revised edition, prompted by the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, came out in 1976, when the tragedy was raging on the mainland and when Chairman Mao and the Gang of Four were still alive.
