๐Ÿ“™ Urban Villages in the New China: Case of Shenzhen by Da Wei David Wang (auth.) โ€” free epub


Focusing on Shenzhen as a representation of the general urban village phenomenon in China, this book considers the impact of Chinaโ€™s economic reform on urbanization and urban villages over the past three decades. Shenzhenโ€™s urban villages are some of the first of their kind in China, unique in their diversity and organizational capacity, but most notably in their ability to protect village culture whilst coexisting with Shenzhen, one of the fastest urbanizing cities on earth. Providing a study of regional contrast of urban villages in China with newly collected fieldwork materials from Guangzhou, Beijing, and Xiโ€™an, this book also considers recent developments within urban villages, including attempts at marketization of the so-called xiao chanquanfang (the quintessential urban village apartment units). It also addresses the corruption scandals that engulfed some urban villages in late 2013. Through cutting edge fieldwork, the author offers a cross-disciplinary study of the history, culture, socio-economic changes, and migration of the villages which arguably embody Chinese social mobility in an urban form.
