As China is transformed, relations between society, the state, and the city have become central. The Great Urban Transformation investigates what is happening in cities, the urban edges, and the rural fringe in order to explain these relations. Hyun Bang Shin highly recommends this book to students of China’s urbanisation, and those who would like to gain an insight into the underlying mechanisms of Chinese cities’ territorial expansion and the emerging struggles around land and housing. The Great Urban Transformation: Politics of Land and Property in China. You-tien Hsing. Oxford University Press. March 2012. Paperback Edition. 272 pages.
