The spatial patterns of China's rapid economic transformation fundamentally challenge conventional geographies of urban and regional development. This book provides a theoretically informed case study of the local character of regional change in China's lower Yangzi Delta, as well as a new analytical framework for understanding China's unique form of economic modernization.


'A high quality contribution to understanding the mechanisms of the spatial transformation of the Chinese countryside.' - China Perspectives

'This excellent book…deserves a wide readership not only among China specialists but also those concerned with development theory and practice.' - The China Journal
