Triad Societies in Hong Kong
This book was published at the instigation of the Hong Kong police mainly to make the police and public aware of the dangers of such secret societies, which then could claim one in six of the population as members. Contrary to popular belief, Hong Kong triads were quite disorganised at the time of publication. Most criminal activities were carried out by small groups of members, rather than the society as a whole. The book is based on interviews with senior triad members arrested by the police.
