From the publisher's description:

This volume offers a fresh perspective on how Chinese cities were transformed or "Westernized" in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries and how Asian and Western cities received Chinese influences dispatched through the media of commerce and migration. Part 1 looks at organizing human life; part 2 at movement and networking; part 3 at importing the modern city; and part 4 at exporting the Chinese city.

Subjects: History; Cultural History; Globalization; Migration; Westernization
