This is a study of political culture of Kwun Tong, a fast-developing industrial community of Hong Kong. Employing a set of concepts developed by sociologists and political scientists, it is attempted to give a systematic explanation of data, thereby throwing some lights on the understanding of people's attitudes and orientations towards politics. This study can provide us with a theoretical and empirical base, be preliminary as it may, to probe into the nature of the political system of the Colony. In analyzing the data bearing on the political culture of the Hong Kong community, empirical findings of other societies are utilized in order to give it a comparative perspective. Furthermore, the Chinese traditional political-cultural value systems have been used as a point of reference, thus showing the continuity and discontinuity of the Chinese political culture of Kwun Tong under investigation Before embarking on analyzing the data directly, a brief articulation of the theoretical framework is in order.
