about

This book offers an in-depth look at the current quality of life in Chinese cities, and how the drastic environmental problems caused by economic growth affect urban residents' lives, all from the perspective of urban and environmental economics. It makes an optimistic argument that market forces, technologies and public policies will help Chinese cities to eventually meet the growing demand for greenness, and thus offers a hopeful message on the future of China's environment.
