Ghost Cities of China : The Story of Cities without People in the World's Most Populated Country Paperback / softback
by Wade Shepard
Part of the Asian Arguments series
Featuring everything from sports stadiums to shopping malls, hundreds of new cities in China stand empty, with hundreds more set to be built by 2030.
Between now and then, the country's urban population will leap to over one billion, as the central government kicks its urbanization initiative into overdrive.
In the process, traditional social structures are being torn apart, and a rootless, semi-displaced, consumption orientated culture rapidly taking their place.
Ghost Cities of China is an enthralling dialogue driven, on-location search for an understanding of China's new cities and the reasons why many currently stand empty.
