Summary:Globalizing South China provides readers with an invaluable evaluation of Greater China, the Chinese diaspora, regional identity formation, the gendered conditions of the regional economy, nature-society relations, and world city transformation. The book concludes by anticipating the futures of Hong Kong and Shanghai and relations between China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore in the wider Asian region. By contributing to theory building and interdisciplinary studies, and based on numerous examples of comparative empirical research, the book is engaging and provocative, and will change the way we understand the region of rapid development in South China.--BOOK JACKET.
