"During the past two decades urban China has undergone a
remarkable transformation as the old system of central planning has
given way to domestic and international market forces. A
once-distinctive model of urbanism is being replaced by something
entirely new. Logan and his collaborators provide a highly
disciplined, coherent, state of the art examination of these
changes through detailed studies of migration, housing reform,
community change and other vital topics." Andrew Walder,
"This book is a timely and valuable contribution to our
understanding of changing China and the urban developmental
process." Yehua Dennis Wei, University of
