"Gender and Community Under British Colonialism" is a study of continuity and change in village communities in the New Territories of Hong Kong, China. Through an in-depth case study of An He village in the New Territories, this book examines the fast-changing features of community life during the British colonial era. It highlights the "realpolitik" collusion between British colonizers and village patriarchy, the intra-village power structures and relations, as well as the agency of Chinese women in shaping the social and political order of local society. Drawing on a wide range of primary and secondary materials, this study examines the gender dynamics of Chinese village society from an interdisciplinary perspective. The findings and analysis of this work will be of interest to anyone interested in colonialism, gender relations, village societies, and state-society relations in modern China.
In 1696 the British government required that all loyal citizens affirm their allegiance to King William III, who had displaced King James II in 1688. The surviving oath rolls in the American colonies include lists of names from New York, Virginia, Barbados, Bermuda, and many of the smaller islands in the Caribbean for which few records now survive. This book is an invaluable record for the historian and genealogist alike.
