China's Urbanization: Theories, Strategies and Policies

By Ma Huaili

China is in transition from an agricultural society to a newly industrialized one. As a result, the 'urbanization' of cities is an inevitable process for further development. During the transformation in finance, industry, and politics, many corresponding changes must be made for functional urban planning. This book examines the development of urbanization in China, analyzing the strategies, policies, and economic theories of the Chinese government during the process. It covers the historical process, the realistic pathway, the future direction, the objectives, the challenges, and the warnings. It shows how urbanization is the result of modernization and is the necessary way forward for a moderately prosperous society, taking into account the changes in economic and social life, as well as the simple realities of the times.
