Pressestimmen"China Urban brings together some of the best new ethnographic work on the changing dynamics of time, space, and place in 1990s China. These essays take the reader into a wide range of localities, but always with an eye turned toward larger national and global transformations. China Urban also speaks to a wide range of debates in contemporary social and political theory, and it offers an innovative approach to the study of the urban in postsocialist China and elswhere. This volume is long overdue."- Ralph Litzinger, author of Other Chinas: The Yao and the Politics of National Belonging "For readers interested in the intersections of space, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity, this book has a wealth of insights to ponder. And for those interested in the complexity, vibrancy, and challenges of today's urban and urbanizing China, this book's the ticket."- Greg Guldin
