Restructuring the Chinese City: Changing Society, Economy and Space


Restructuring the Chinese City: Changing Society, Economy and Space Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tremendous social and economic changes have taken place in Chinese Cities since China embarked on a reform programme. Such changes are best manifested in the built environment of the cities where geographic space, social life, demographic composition and economic production have witnessed restructuring from socialist patterns to increasingly market based forms. Restructuring the Chinese City brings together contributions from leading scholars on urban China to shed important light on critical issues of recent change in Chinese cities. The book will focus on how the new economy and changing society have (re)shaped urban space and place, and how the interplay among global, national and local forces comes together to reconfigure Chinese urban Space. Empirically grounded studies posit the significance of urban China research beyond the (post-) socialist city model. In the process it helping to theorize the changing regime of accumulation and spatial restructuring in the contemporary urbanworld.
