This book aims to examine the characteristics, roles and social values of public spaces in the globalized territory of Hong Kong. Choi focuses on the usage of public space by marginalised communities, particularly the foreign domestic helpers of Hong Kong. By examining their weekly social and political activities across a range of public spaces in the city, Choi addresses the influence of the marginalized on the wider community and built environment of this advanced capitalist society.
