Theory, History and Self-Characterization of Social Margins in Public Writings
ix Acknowledgements Finishing this book was not easy. Several life events delayed its comple- tion. These events included my family obligation to fold my father’s family business, my tantalizing engagement in fi eldwork with a local Hong Kong industry and the heavy workload of part-time teaching. However, I would fi rst and foremost like to thank sincerely Agnes S. M. Ku, who was my supervisor for my thesis and who continuously encouraged me to publish my academic work. Wai-yip Ho, my friend and once my dearest classmate at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, shared his knowledge of academic publishing with me. I would also like to thank Anthony Woodiwiss, whose lectures I attended at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, for reading through the manuscript of this book and affi rming the contribution that my work could make to the present literature; his support for my work made me determined to fi nish it as quickly as possible. Last but not least, I would like to thank Sharon Sanderson and Peter Madill for their careful and professional editing.
