History of Hong Kong

Occupied by United Kingdom during the First Opium War in 1841, Hong Kong Island was formally ceded by China the following year under the Treaty of Nanking. Parts of the adjacent Kowloon Peninsula (south of Boundary Street, and the Stonecutter's Island) were ceded to Britain in 1860 by the Convention of Peking after the Second Opium War. Various adjacent lands, known as the New Territories (including New Kowloon) were then leased to Britain for 99 years (from July 1, 1898 to June 30, 1997).

Anglo-China: Chinese People and British Rule in Hong Kong  -   Christopher Munn
This is a study of the first three decades of British rule in Hong Kong. It focuses on the troubled and controversial process of establishing a British colony at Hong Kong and on the reception of British rule by people in the region. This neglected period in Hong Kong's history demands a fresh examination, not only because these were years crowded with events and controversies, but also because they saw the working out of a lasting relationship between the colonial government and the Chinese population.
