Urbanisation is the driver behind China's economic, political and social advances, with the Chinese media reporting that 183 Chinese cities now aim to develop and present themselves as modern international metropolises. Via interviews, reports and photographs, the authors examine the characteristics and potential of these cities. The book examines what constitutes a contemporary world city, where skyscrapers and big populations must blend with an international reputation, a lively cultural life, and ethnic diversity. The authors investigate the extent to which these criteria are already being achieved in China, and how they impact on the country's vision of its urban future.
