Handbook on Transport and Urban Transformation in China
Since 1978, when China embarked on a new period of economic reforms and introduced open door policies, it has experienced a great urban transformation. The role of transport has proved indispensable in this unprecedented rapid urbanisation and economic growth.
As the first research-focused book dedicated to this important topic, the Handbook on Transport and Urban Transformation in China offers new insight into the various opportunities and challenges brought by fast-paced motorisation and urban development, and explores them in broad spatial-economic, environmental, social, and institutional dimensions.
This collection is an informative and comprehensive reference for researchers and academics at all levels studying transport, urban planning, and geography. It will also help practitioners and consultants gain a deeper understanding of policy development and best practices, and international and domestic policy makers will find guidance in the implications and lessons proposed for future transport research, policy, and practice.
