Numerous personality clashes and financial and other intrigues surrounded the early efforts to set up an Observatory in Hong Kong. Blending personalities, politics and practicalities of studying the weather, this entertaining book provides valuable and informative insights into the public and private controversies growing out of responses to and responsibilities involved in the protection of life and property. This portrait is set firmly in the context of the history of Hong Kong as British colony on the China Coast and its role as a burgeoning commercial port within the trading complex of the Empire. It brings to life many of the people and institutions in Hong Kong and elsewhere on the development of meteorology on the China Coast. Dr. William Doberck, who became the founding director of the new Observatory, played a crucial role in its development during most of forty years covered by this story. Doberck was an astronomer with little interest in meteorology and a penchant for not suffering gladly those whom he considered to be his inferiors -- a source of much of the dissension and adversarial positions that characterized his career. In the early years of Doberck's tenure, many trials and tribulations arose from conflicts between his views on his work and those of a less than enlightened but firmly entrenched Colonial Administration. Other key players added to the mix include the local print media, local businesses and the shipping fraternity, whose ongoing dissatisfaction stemmed from conflicting perceptions and expectations on all sides. In assessing the achievements of the Observatory in its early decades, the study of typhoons has central importance. In recounting Doberck's less than stellar contributions in this regard, he narrative follows many snippets of scandal concerning Doberck and his often cantankerous relationship with his employers and the other stakeholders in the Colony. In later chapters, the author explores the complex dynamics of the contentious interactions between Doberck and the Jesuits in charge of the Manila and Zikawei Observatories. The storms that rage in the narrative as well as the tragedy of the very real storm of 1906 illustrate the drama that played out both locally and internationally in terms of jealousies, rivalries, and many attendant charges and counter-charges animating the controversy. The depiction of Doberck's eventual departure and succession story offer insight into the largely uncredited contribution of his sister to the meteorological work of the Observatory for around 40 years. Under Doberck's successors, Figg and Claxton, the Observatory enjoyed a resurgence of influence in meteorology in the China coast region. P. Kevin MacKeownis retired professor of physics at the University of Hong Kong.
