"A must-read book for those who want a critical and multifacetedexamination of Chinese urbanization. The author is clearly at homein China and shares insights we rarely read about."
Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, author of Cities in aWorld Economy 2012
"A significant contribution to introducing the process ofChina’s urbanization."
The China Journal
"The world is fascinated by the fundamental changes inChina's cities and how they link to larger projects of nationaldevelopment and globalization. Few scholars have examined thesequestions with such a broad-ranging focus as Xuefei Ren does here,offering new insight into growing inequality, how shiftinglandscapes are transforming lives, and the implications of thesedynamics for citizen protest, human rights, and new culturalpractices."
Diane E. Davis, Harvard University
"By far the most comprehensive account of the changing Chineseurban society. Ren's critical reading of the current urban Chinaresearch begins to reveal a new horizon of urban studies in anon-Western context – sweeping through specificconfigurations of hukou and 'villages in the city' to more generalchanges in social and spatial inequalities."
