China's Spatial Economic Development : Restless landscapes in the Lower Yangzi Delta

£14.99

Product description

Very good condition apart from a 10mm nick on the bottom of the spine/front cover. Excellent condition of pages inside - all clean and tight.

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 modernisation.
The spatial patterns of China's rapid economic transformation fundamentally challenge conventional geographies of urban and regional development. The development of 'market socialism' in China has contributed to a spatial economic transformation characterised by an apparent capacity to rapidly industrialise without transferring large numbers of people into big cities. The author offers an explanation of the emergence of these relatively productive non-urban regions, an area where conventional theories of development, industrialisation and urbanisation have proved inadequate. China's distinctive experience is also held up as a unique source of reflection on the critical dimensions of regional change in an increasingly volatile global economic environment.
