Once Upon A Time Hong Kong
They dwelt in marbled halls, overlooking spectacular vistas, breakfasted amid the aspidistras on arched verandahs and were borne in sedan chairs down to a gracious mercantile metropolis of classical elegance. They were the pioneers, living in a city very different from the one that has replaced it. Almost nothing remains of their era except the historical record and the photographic plates that have affectionately preserved their vanished architecture, faithfully recaptured in this volume of what Hong Kong was, once upon a time.

Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress
Is modernity really failing? Or have we failed to appreciate progress and the ideals that make it possible? If you follow the headlines, the world in the 21st century appears to be sinking into chaos, hatred, and irrationality. Yet Steven Pinker shows that this is an illusion - a symptom of historical amnesia and statistical fallacies. If you follow the trendlines rather than the headlines, you discover that our lives have become longer, healthier, safer, happier, more peaceful, more stimulating and more prosperous - not just in the West, but worldwide. Such progress is no accident: it's the gift of a coherent and inspiring value system that many of us embrace without even realizing it. These are the values of the Enlightenment: of reason, science, humanism and progress.
