Wang Yuyang Poetry

The Poetry Commentary of Wang Yuyang’s Poetry               《王渔洋诗选注》 (2022)

Annotated by: Mr Gary Wu


As one of the most influential poets of the early Qing Dynasty, Wang Shizhen, aka “Yuyang Shanren”, was a prolific poet having a repertoire of up to 4,000 poems. Among his many well-received works of various poetic forms, Wang is best known for his Qijue. He did a marvelous job in combining the favourable features of Tang poetry and Song poetry, which enables his poetry to be utterly expressive while leaving readers with a lasting impression. In recent years, literature of Ming and Qing Dynasties has drawn more attention than ever. Thus, taking a closer look at this prolific and leading poet in early Qing’s literature should be a desideratum.

The book is a compilation of around 80 poetical works of  Wang. Apart from "modern-style" poetry (Jintishi), more attention has been paid to "ancient-style" poetry (Gushi) compared with other books of the like. By providing accurate commentary, this book aims at explaining the vocabulary, telling of allusions, and commenting on the poems’ features to facilitate readers’ appreciation of the charisma of this celebrated poet in the Qing Dynasty.

Study Text for Purple Hairpin

Co-authored by: Prof Chan Sauyan, Dr Cheung Kwan-hin, Dr Ho Koon-wan
作者:陈守仁教授、张群显博士 何冠环博士

Adapted from Ming dynasty playwright Tang Xianzu's play with the same name, Purple Hairpin by Tong Dik-sang is considered the most successful Canto-opera on courtesans, rendering it a Canto-operatic classic.

Yet, for various reasons, Tong's adaptation is not without flaws from historical and geographical perspectives, especially as regards the proper names used. Those bugs are in the main left unfixed hitherto.

Apart from fulfilling the expected function of annotating the play in terms of music, language and theatrical art, this study text goes one step further to thoroughly re-edit the entire play, rectifying certain anachronisms, mis-locations, and similar anomalies. It is hoped that this re-edited version adds even more favour to this classic.

Ageing and Effecting Long-term Care in China (2021)

Co-authored by: Dr Sabrina Luk, Dr Hui Zhang, Prof. Peter P. Yuen 

This book compares the key features of long-term care insurance (LTCI) schemes in 15 pilot cities and evaluates the sustainability of various financing models adopted by the cities in the LTCI schemes. This book uses an interpretive case study approach to give an in-depth look into the LTC models in three pilot cities – Qingdao, Nantong, and Shanghai. The three cities represent three different models of financing and delivering LTC. To assess how effective the LTC models in these three cities are, this book uses five criteria, namely the utilisation of medical resources, cost, equity, the quality of care and sustainability. Also, the authors discuss how the financing and delivery of LTC can be improved in China, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on older adults in need of LTC in the country and the implications of China’s LTCI reform for other countries. This book will be a useful reference for scholars and policy-makers who look at urban ageing and healthcare costs and delivery.

Co-authored by: Dr Ben Fong, Dr Vincent Law, Dr Tiffany Leung, Dr Man-fung Lo, Mr Tommy Ng, Ms Hilary Yee

This book looks at several critical health issues related to ageing. The elderly, particularly those with low socio-economic status, rely more on acute-centric care rather than primary care. This book suggests that secondary care service may only be effective to a limited extent as a healthcare measure and an optimum healthcare system should be one that focuses on primary care. The authors put forth a compelling argument for disease prevention and screening schemes and explain how they are more cost-effective and beneficial to society and the system. This thoughtful book will provide beneficial insights into the relationship of ageing and Sustainable Development Goals in the context of health and wellness for policymakers and healthcare professionals.
