Review quote

"Relying on a wide grounding in the historical literature as well as a specialist's sense of spatial history, [Cartier] offers nuanced, often fascinating portraits of South China's economic and cultural dynamism." Choice
"The book has broken new ground in promoting the study and understanding of urban and regional development and also China study. With the meticulous evaluation of research materials under the contextualist approach, Globalizing South China exhibits a high standard of scholarship and intellectual sophistication."
