Globalizing South China provides readers with an invaluable evaluation of "Greater China", the Chinese diaspora, regional identity formation, the gendered conditions of the regional economy, nature-society relations, and world city transformation. The book concludes by anticipating the futures of Hong Kong and Shanghai and relations between China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore in the wider Asian region. By contributing to theory building and interdisciplinary studies, and based on numerous examples of comparative empirical research, the book is engaging and provocative, and will change the way we understand the region of rapid development in South China.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book has broken new ground in promoting the study and understanding of urban and regional development and also China study. With the meticulous evaluation of research materials under the contextualist approach, Globalizing South China exhibits a high standard of scholarship and intellectual sophistication."
