In the first half of 2003, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) struck China (including Hong Kong), causing panic and claiming many lives. The unknown nature of SARS at that time also jolted the economic growth of China and Hong Kong, disrupted the social life of their citizens and created much stress and strain for their political systems and governance. Like other major crises, the management of the SARS crisis provides a good opportunity to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the political systems in China and Hong Kong. From the outset, scholars at the East Asian Institute (EAI) followed closely the unfolding of the disease in China, particularly how each of the two societies coped with this random external shock. SARS may or may not recur in the near future, but the episode has offered a glimpse into the extent of resilience of the two societies, the quality of their political leadership, the effectiveness of their political and institutional mobilization, the crisis-management capability of their respective bureaucracies, and the viability of their governance systems. This volume is the result of an EAI workshop on "SARS in China: Crises and Responses".This book has been selected for coverage in: - Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings(R) (ISTP(R) / ISI Proceedings)- Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings (ISTP CDROM version / ISI Proceedings)- Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings(R) (ISSHP(R) / ISI Proceedings)- Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP CDROM version / ISI Proceedings)- CC Proceedings – Biomedical, Biological & Agricultural Sciences
