9780742567832: China's Geography: Globalization and the Dynamics of Political, Economic, and Social Change (Changing Regions in a Global Context: New Perspectives in Regional Geography Ser)

Despite China's obvious and growing importance on the world stage, it is often and easily misunderstood. Indeed, there are many Chinas, as this comprehensive survey of contemporary China vividly illustrates. Now in a thoroughly revised and updated edition that offers the only sustained geography of the reform era, this book traces the changes occurring in this powerful and ancient nation across both time and space. Beginning with China's diverse landscapes and environments and continuing through its formative history and tumultuous recent past, the authors present contemporary China as a product of both internal and external forces of past and present. They trace current and future successes and challenges while placing China in its international context as a massive, still-developing nation that must meet the needs of its 1.3 billion citizens while becoming a major regional and global player. Through clear prose and new, dynamic maps and photos, China's Geography illustrates and explains the great differences in economy and culture found throughout China's many regions.

Review:

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION This well-organized book . . . is a welcome addition. . . . Anyone looking for an up-to-date geography textbook on China should give this volume a close look. I also strongly recommend it as a general reader for people wanting to get a good overview of China. (Richard Louis Edmonds China Quarterly)

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION A fascinating book, authoritative but not pedantic. One chapter each is devoted to Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan; the remaining 10 chapters cover various aspects of the human geography of mainland China . . . Highly recommended. (Choice)

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION This book provides an up-to-date, comprehensive survey of the various factors that have contributed to China's recent emergence as a global economic power and the impact of success on its natural environment and people. The authors are to be congratulated for making a major contribution to the literature, distinguished by their insightful interpretations of each topic covered. All students and scholars interested in the new geography of China should read this book. (C. P. Lo)

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Combining scholarship and accessibility, this informative analysis gives an updated, incisive, and refreshing portrayal of China's society and economy in the new millennium. It will be valuable for students, observers, and researchers interested in China and for all readers who want to understand the rapidly changing and globalizing world where the rise of China is increasingly a reality. (Fan, C Cindy)

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Written by four leading specialists, this thorough text on China's dramatic geographic transformation provides excellent analyses of the land, people, economy, and society in urban and rural China. Ideal for college students and the general public who wish to know the country better. (Laurence J. C. Ma)
