Equipped with the diverse talents and tools of a journalist, scholar, and travel writer, Williams tells a fascinating story about China's pursuit of economic growth and environmental protection, urbanization schemes and new socialist countryside initiatives, urban modernization programs and rural heritage policies, which can only be described as contradictory, incongruous, and conflicting yet daunting in their nature, driven by high-minded seriousness, a pragmatic spirit, and unalloyed ambition. - --Sustainability: the Journal of Record
Among the myriad of books on a rising China, China's Urban Revolution sits among the most valuable. - --Asian Affairs
China's Urban Revolution is a terrific book. - --Spiked
