China Information: Special issue on cyberpolitics

F1.mediumChina Information‘s latest issue, vol. 28, no. 2 (July 2014) is a special issue on cyberpolitics, put together by guest editor Guobin Yang. The articles are free for download until 16 August 2014.

China Information presents timely and in-depth analyses of major developments in contemporary China and overseas Chinese communities in the areas of politics, economics, law, ecology, culture, and society, including literature and the arts.

China Information pays special attention to views and areas that do not receive sufficient attention in the mainstream discourse on contemporary China. It encourages discussion and debate between different academic traditions, offers a platform to express controversial and dissenting opinions, and promotes research that is historically sensitive and contemporarily relevant.

Can China’s urbanization save the world?

Kam Wing Chan (2013), Can China’s Urbanization save the World? Association of American Geographers, http://www.aag.org/cs/news_detail?pressrelease.id=2090

For the first time in Chinese history more people now live in cities and towns than in the countryside. Some 700 million urban dwellers now account for more than half of China’s total population. Many pundits, such as Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, have said this urban transition will be one of the two main forces shaping the world in the 21st century.
