This book examines speculative urban development and new
pattern of urban governance in the context of China’s
neoliberal turning. By adopting a post-structuralist lens,
the book discusses the restless interactions and power
relations, hidden behind the restless conflicts, struggles,
negotiations and cooperation among multiple stakeholders
during state-led and capital-driven land development. This
book therefore reveals a state-led benefit distribution
mechanism through which stakeholders are actively and
passively involved in the renewal process and slowly promote
speculative land development projects in continued
cooperation and competition.
