This book describes the dramatic economic and spatial transformation inChina’s Pearl River Delta region over the past decade. Reformsintroduced by the Chinese government since 1978 were the cause of thistransformation. The Pearl River Delta has had the highest recorded rateof economic growth in East Asia and has done so through a pattern ofdevelopment which differed significantly from that found in otherregions of fast growth. George Lin reviews the processes by which thisremarkable transformation was achieved and discusses the implicationsof such change. Red Capitalism in South China looks attheories of regional development and the patterns of spatial andeconomic restructuring in the Delta, and provides three case studieswhich focus on the transformation of the peasant economy, transportdevelopment, and the influence of Hong Kong.
