This volume, written by contributors from a number of different specialisms, suggests that different combinations of factors have contributed to the relative successes and failures in these cities. Endowment factors, preferential policies, and history have all proved to be important. Most importantly, Cities in Post-Mao China suggests that locally-generated strategies of development are crucial determinants. This ground-breaking volume reveals through close detail and broad coverage how exactly cities have been catalysts for Chinas economic development. It will provide much needed data for those working in the fields of comparative politics, development studies, economic development and Asian studies.
