This book, first published in 1980, is a study of how refugee immigrants from China make a living as market gardeners in a valley in Hong Kong. Based on extensive field-work, it examines various aspects of economic life; the discussion concerns the adaptations necessitated on the part of the gardeners by the new socio-economic structures which present themselves. The general problem of agricultural change is discussed and the Hong Kong observations are systematized into a comparative Chinese framework.
