Summary
Over the past thirty years, China?s cities became home to 500 million new residents. China?s urban population is on track to reach 1 billion by 2030. The rapid expansion of urban China is astonishing, but new policies are urgently needed to create healthier cities. Combining on-the-ground reportage and up-to-date research, this pivotal book explains why China has failed to reap many of the economic and social benefits of urbanization, and suggests how these problems can be resolved
