Abstract: This dissertation takes the Asia Press as a case to examine and explore the publishing industry in Hong Kong during the early Cold War years, in the context of the Cultural Cold War in Asia. It aims to articulate how Asia Press participated in and what kind of role it played in the field of cultural production in Hong Kong and the region during the early Cold War years. It seeks to explain how the Asia Press strategized itself in its literary and cultural activities to achieve its mission in anti-Communist causes. This paper also attempts to demarcate and delineate how a popular imagination of the United States and the Free World could be constructed through indigenous publishing effort of a Chinese print media supported by the superpower in Hong Kong.
