Concrete Dragon

ByThomas Campanella

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Concrete Dragon: China's Urban Revolution and What it Means for the World surveys the driving forces behind the recent great Chinese building boom, larger than anything the world has ever seen, and traces the historical precedents and global flows of ideas and information that are creating a bold new Chinese cityscape, while considering the social and environmental impacts of China's urban future. The Concrete Dragon provides a critical overview of contemporary Chinese urbanization in light of both China's past as well as earlier episodes of rapid urban development elsewhere in the world—especially that of the United States, a nation that itself once set global records for the speed and scale of its urban ambitions.
