Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A valuable and timely addition to the expanding Chinese city studies." Kam Wing Chan, University of Washington

"During the past two decades urban China has undergone a remarkable transformation as the old system of central planning has given way to domestic and international market forces. A once-distinctive model of urbanism is being replaced by something entirely new. Logan and his collaborators provide a highly disciplined, coherent, state of the art examination of these changes through detailed studies of migration, housing reform, community change and other vital topics." Andrew Walder, Stanford University

"This book is a timely and valuable contribution to our understanding of changing China and the urban developmental process." Yehua Dennis Wei, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
