Handbook on Urban Development in China (Hardcover): Ray Yep, June Wang, Thomas Johnson Handbook on Urban Development in China (Hardcover)
Ray Yep, June Wang, Thomas Johnson
R4,332 Discovery Miles 43 320 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In recent decades, China has undergone an extraordinary transformation from an overwhelmingly rural population to that of a predominantly urban one. This major new Handbook examines and explores the key features and implications of this urbanising process from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Using three overarching themes - progress and enhancement, dislocation and tension, and the unique features of Chinese urban development - leading experts in the field provide a contemporary analysis of critical issues affecting China today. This includes the nature of urban change, governance and migration, and how this has impacted the politics, culture, economy and environment. Unprecedented in depth and breadth, contributors both from within mainland China and across the globe offer varied analyses and perspectives of continuity and reform in policies that allow China to continue to evolve. Sections also cover individuality, the urban-rural interface and possible future policy directions, with crucial discussion about continuing urbanisation in an increasingly interconnected world. Essential reading for academics and students of urban and Chinese studies, this Handbook provides a timely and much needed reference work for those who want to better understand China's urbanisation experiences.

R9,126 Discovery Miles 91 260 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This major reference book comprises specially commissioned surveys in environmental and resource economics written by an international team of experts. Authoritative yet accessible, each entry provides a state-of-the-art summary of key areas that will be invaluable to researchers, practitioners and advanced students. The handbook contains 79 chapters distributed over 10 main sections: * introduction * economics of natural resources * economics of environmental policy * international aspects of environmental economics and policy * space in environmental economics * environmental macroeconomics * economic valuation and evaluation * interdisciplinary issues * methods and models in environmental and resource economics * prospects Aside from being the most extensive survey of environmental and resource economics available today, the handbook contains several special and unique features. Five of the ten main sections cover topics that are addressed marginally or not at all in previous handbooks or other surveys. Moreover, in addition to overviews of the standard (neoclassical) approach, the book covers core elements of ecological economics in the section on interdisciplinary issues, with a separate chapter comparing neoclassical and ecological economics. The first section includes an introduction and summary of the handbook, as well as a chapter with a historical survey of environmental economics. The final section covers future areas of research from both monodisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives. At a chapter level the handbook addresses, in addition to standard topics, both less common and recent topics in environmental and resource economics. These include cartels in resource extraction, trade in resources, indicators of resource scarcity, endogenous risk, policy in imperfect markets, transaction costs, the double dividend of ecotaxation, distribution issues, ethics and policy, ethics and valuation, strategic trade, endogenous locations, endogenous growth theory, environmental Kuznets curves, sustainability and sustainable development, the meaning of thermodynamics, analysis of materials flows, the relevance of ecological theory, multi-criteria analysis, computable general equilibrium models, decomposition methods, and ecological economics. Traditional topics are surveyed as well, for instance, externalities, instrument choice, nonrenewable resource extraction, fishery economics, water use, the growth debate, valuation methods and cost-benefit analysis. A final main advantage of the handbook is that the extensive sub-divisions into topics means that the surveys offer an advanced treatment whilst being concise, authoritative and accessible.

R4,467 Discovery Miles 44 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This project is distinctive in that it really is a `Who's Who' rather than a directory of all scholars engaged in international business education and research. It develops a select sample of 150 leading scholars and practitioners extracted from a sample of at least 1200 in the field. The sample is drawn from the use of multiple selection criteria reflecting research productivity, citational analysis, executive officers and fellows of the AIB, management of US-based CIBERS and peer-based nominations. These indicators highlight contributions that expand the frontiers of research and also recognize contributions to professional and institutional development. The compilation is also distinctive in that it allows respondents to offer a personal statement on the principal contributions they have made to the field of international business. The main listing in the book is alphabetic by name and the information is indexed for ease of reference. The volume serves as a central reference in the field of international business, and is an indispensable guide to academic, government and business communities.
