The Chinese Dream: A Society Under Construction
China is in the midst of breakneck transformation. The last 30 years of astonishing economic growth and political and cultural reform have been driven by the world’s biggest ever urban boom. Soon, China will take center stage as a global superpower, with hundreds of millions of people flooding into its rapidly swelling cities. The Chinese Dreamis a visual tour de force, both encyclopedic in scope and holistic in approach. Cutting across all levels of scale--from individual to nation--and backed by a truly multi-disciplinary team (encompassing architecture & urban planning, politics, economics, arts & culture, environmental concerns, and sociology) the book synthesizes a vast body of research to tackle the big contemporary questions, and to unpack the paradoxes at the heart of China’s struggle for change.
