Politics & government
The rise of China has been shaped and driven by its engagement with the global economy during a period of intensified globalization, yet China is a continent-sized economy and society with substantial diversity across its different regions. This means that its engagement with the global economy cannot just be understood at the national level, but requires analysis of the differences in participation in the global economy across China's regions.

This book responds to this challenge by looking at the development of China's regions in this era of globalization. It traces the evolution of regional policy in China and its implications in a global context. Detailed chapters examine the global trajectory of what is now becoming known as the Greater Bay Area in southern China, the globalization of the inland mega-city of Chongqing, and the role of China's regions in the globally-focused belt and road initiative launched by the Chinese government in late 2013.

The book will be of interest to practitioners and scholars engaging with contemporary China's political economy and international relations.

Reviews for China's Regions in an Era of Globalization

With considerable analytical rigor and clarity in exposition, Summers convincingly shows that China's engagement with globalization cannot just be understood at the national level, but has fundamentally been a story about differentiated participation in the global economy across China's regions. This is the first book to examine China's post-1978 development from a regional perspective. Students, researchers, and policy makers who want to understand China's rapid economic rise in the 21st century will find this book indispensable. - Alvin So, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China
