"There is, by now, a long line of studies strongly linking urbanization and development (e.g., see Preston, 1979; Bairoch 1988; London 1987; Henderson 2002). This is especially salient in the developing world, where economic growth and modernization goes hand-in-hand with rapid urbanization (Alonso, 1980; Rondinelli, 1980; Becker and Morrison, 1988; Kasarda and Crenshaw, 1991).

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Urbanization-led development brings not just demographic, technological, and economic change, but profound institutional transition, as well. The scale and pace of China’s urbanization project have generated a crisis for millions living in rural–urban peripheries. We will utilize a model of institutional fit to conduct a critical analysis of China’s urbanization program and its implementation problems. Utilizing a semi-structured interview format, we analyze the experiences of the so-called “land-lost” residents in Changsha, China, vis-à-vis this ongoing institutional transition. The analysis provides a rich account of the myriad ways the transition to a privatized property market runs counter to the collective nature of peri-urban Chinese communities.
