Chinese Urbanism : Critical Perspectives, Paperback / softback Book

Chinese Urbanism : Critical Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by Mark (Cardiff University, UK) Jayne


This book provides a definitive overview of contemporary developments in our understanding of urban life in China.

Multidisciplinary perspectives outline the most significant critical, theoretical, methodological and empirical developments in our appreciation of Chinese cities in the context of an increasingly globalized world.

Each chapter includes reviews and appraisals of past and current theoretical development and embarks on innovative theoretical directions relating to Marxist, feminist, post-structural, post-colonial and `more-than-representational' thinking.

The book provides an in-depth insight into urban change and considers in what ways theoretical engagement with Chinese cities contributes to our understanding of `global urbanism'.

Chapters explore how new critical perspectives on economic, political, social, spatial, emotional, embodied and affective practices add value to our understanding of urban life in, and beyond, China. Chinese Urbanism offers valuable insights which will be of interest to students and scholars alike working in geography, urban studies, Asian studies, economics, political studies and beyond.
