It deals with questions such as the nature of the urbanization process before and after reform, and the question of hukou and rural to urban migration. Part B is on the internal structure of Chinese cities, focusing on urban land development. China’s changing land use structure will be studied from various theoretical and methodological perspectives. Part C is on China’s urban housing.
