From the cover: “The Department of History is one of the University of Hong Kong’s oldest departments, having come into existence when the University opened its doors to students in the autumn of 1912. In 2002 the Department of History celebrates its ninetieth anniversary together with the two other foundation departments of the Faculty of Arts, the Departments of Chinese and English. An Impossible Dream, a collection of essays on the early history of HKU from its foundation in 1910 until its re-establishment after the Pacific War, has been published to coincide with this anniversary. The essays in this volume have been written by past and present members of the History Department and explore various issues in the early history of HKU.”
