Description - China's Spatial Economic Development by Andrew M. Marton

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 conceptual framework for understanding China's unique form of economic modernisation. The development of 'market socialism' in China has contributed to a spatial economic transformation characterized by an apparent capacity to rapidly industrialize 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, industrialization and urbanization 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. China's Spatial Economic Development contributes both a new theoretical framework and a wealth of original research material to the study of rural transformation and urban transition in China.
