With urbanism becoming the key driver of socio-economic change in China, this book provides much needed up-to-date material on Chinese urban development.
Demonstrating how it transcends the centrally-planned model of economic growth, and assessing the extent to which it has gone beyond the common wisdom of Chinese `gradualism', the book covers a wide range of important topics, including:local land development the local state private-public partnership foreign investment urbanization ageinghome ownership.
Providing a clear appraisal of recent trends in Chinese urbanism, this book puts forward important new conceptual resources to fill the gap between the outdated model of the `Third World' city and the globalizing cities of the West.
