The Concrete Dragon: China's Urban Revolution and What it Means for the World
by Thomas J. Campanella
With impressive figures to show how the Chinese do it bigger, bolder and faster, urban design professor Campanella tells the story of the Chinese urban revolution from an insightful new perspective. With a historical, non-judgmental, and persistently optimistic tone, the book reflects on the influence of foreigners, the destruction of the patrimony, and more importantly comments on the global and local impact of these transformations on the environment and the social fabric of China and the world.
