This collection of selected works by Prof. Chen shows the contours of the author’s scholarship as it developed over his academic career, from 1984 to the present. Part I covers the legal developments and controversies of “One Country, Two Systems” since the HKSAR was established. Part II shifts to focus on how the socialist legal system in China evolved and modernised in the era of “reform and opening”. Part III examines the transplantation of Western constitutionalism to East Asia in modern times. The Preface sets out the basic orientation and paradigm of these studies, and the Epilogue reflects on the main themes of the book.
