Handbook on Urban Development in China

About the eBook

In recent decades, China has undergone an extraordinary transformation from an overwhelmingly rural population to that of a predominantly urban one. This major new Handbook examines and explores the key features and implications of this urbanising process from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

Using three overarching themes - progress and enhancement, dislocation and tension, and the unique features of Chinese urban development - leading experts in the field provide a contemporary analysis of critical issues affecting China today. This includes the nature of urban change, governance and migration, and how this has impacted the politics, culture, economy and environment. Unprecedented in depth and breadth, contributors both from within mainland China and across the globe offer varied analyses and perspectives of continuity and reform in policies that allow China to continue to evolve. Sections also cover individuality, the urban-rural interface and possible future policy directions, with crucial discussion about continuing urbanisation in an increasingly interconnected world.

Essential reading for academics and students of urban and Chinese studies, this Handbook provides a timely and much needed reference work for those who want to better understand China's urbanisation experiences.
