 sociology - City   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A city is an urban area, differentiated from a town, village, or hamlet by size, population density, importance, or legal status.
Although city can refer to an agglomeration including suburban and satellite areas, the term is not appropriate for a conurbation (cluster) of distinct urban places, nor for a wider metropolitan area including more than one city, each acting as a focus for parts of the area.
In the United Kingdom, a city is a town which has been known as a city since time immemorial, or which has received city status by royal charter — which is normally granted on the basis of size, importance or royal connection (traditional pointers have been whether the town has a cathedral or a university).

 durham21 | columns | Home Towns #5: Why Hong Kong was handed back and forth
Economically, Hong Kong had been on a roller-coaster ride ever since that fateful day when it was handed over to the communists some eight years ago.
As it stands Hong Kong is still at the research and development stage: its international competitiveness has come into question because it is still relatively expensive to do anything at all in Hong Kong and because other, cheaper, cities are catching up in terms of labour and technology.
Hong Kong is famous for its food: but be aware that this is not the kind of food you would expect from your local Chinese take-away.

 Tseung Kwan O -   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Tseung Kwan O is a bay near the eastern mouth of Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour.
The new town is within Sai Kung District in the eastern New Territories, but it is often incorrectly regarded as part of Kowloon due to its close proximity to the city.
The inhabitants of the village are mostly native to Hong Kong.

 China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Kingdom and Portugal transferred their colonies of Hong Kong and Macau on the southern Chinese coast to the PRC in 1997 and 1999, respectively.
Luoyang, Chang'an (today's Xi'an), Nanjing, and Beijing are the four cities most commonly designated as capitals of China over the course of history.
Chinese was the official language, though periods of Mongol and Manchu conquest saw the arrival of Mongol and Manchu as alternate official languages.

 Carfree Times: September 2005
If New Orleans, a city of about 1.3 million people, is to be relocated, we should make the point that a new carfree city would cost less to build and emit fewer greenhouse gases than any alternative that might be considered.
Hong Kong has a population of seven million crowded into just 1,000 sq km of land, with the large majority of people on Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon peninsula, which total just 125 sq km.
While our ultimate goal is to create cities without cars, in the meantime, we may be able greatly to reduce the role of cars in cities, and the amount of space they are allowed to consume.

Positions for most cities in Europe and the Middle East are generally unchanged, with the exception of Cairo which has tumbled nine places to position 131 and scores 71.2 due to the political turmoil and terrorist attacks in the city and surrounding area.
Hong Kong’s modern and efficient infrastructure, including its airport (which is considered one of best in the world), has pushed it up from 70th to 68th position with a score of 95.4.

 China (includes Tibet, Hong Kong, and Macau)
Treatment of some migrant workers was improved in many major cities through the passage of laws intended to guarantee migrant children access to public education and to protect migrant workers' rights to receive their salary on a regular basis.
In June, officials in Jieshou City, Anhui Province, forced a woman to be sterilized, and state media reported that the woman was injured when she jumped out of a window in the operating room in an attempt to avoid the procedure.
In the same city, another woman committed suicide when her relatives were detained in population schools, facilities designed to provide reeducation to those who violate family planning guidelines.

 Amazon.com: Lonely Planet Hong Kong, Macau (10th Edition): Books: Damian Harper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Strictly speaking, the story of Hong Kong as it is today - the Special Administrative Region (SAR) of Hong Kong - begins on 1 July 1997, when China resumed control of the territory after more than a century and a half of British rule.
And the color maps from the slim "Hong Kong" book also are in the back of the new "Hong Kong and Macau." The new book still uses the hard-to-read, hard-to-find B&W maps for the border towns and Macau's islands, but that's a quibble I can live with.
I highly recommend Jan Morris's book Hong Kong, which gives great and moving detail on the whole refugee origins of modern Hong Kong and made me realise what an intense human story there lies behind the tourist bureau image of the place (there is much info on the interesting history on British days, too).

"plum nest") is a rural town on the south-eastern coast of Lantau Island in Hong Kong.
Prior to the Airport Core Programme and the subsequent development of Tung Chung and North Lantau into a new town, Mui Wo was the principal point for day-trippers setting out to explore Lantau Island.
Today, it is still the principal way of reaching South Lantau - from the beaches in Cheung Sha to the fishing village of Tai O and the Tian Tan Buddha, as the single-lane Tung Chung Road linking Tung Chung and South Lantau is not suited for higher loads.

 Bibliography
There are other ways to organize or expand the list of subjects covered, such as adding references to mapping of individual cities, states, military cartography, or a number of other areas.
The list of potential reference works, covering virtually the entire globe, is quite large and could accommodate a separate monograph.
The books are listed with their titles first, which is intentional, though not the usual bibliographic convention.
