Chinese Middle Class & Cities

Identify the politics of demolition in
the post socialist Chinese cities, and address the issue of land speculation in
the process of urbanization. Is demolition a “necessary” step for urbanization
and achieving modernity in China? If demolition of urban spaces and building
postmodern skyscrapers are symbolically linked to “forgetting the socialist
past and catching up with the West”, would you agree with scholars like Lin Chun
on the relevance of socialism in the post socialist era?
