(p.180) Conclusion
Urbanizing China in War and Peace

Toby Lincoln

University of Hawai'i Press

The conclusion briefly describes Wuxi’s continued recovery after the Japanese surrender before reviewing the main themes of the book. It reflects on the relationship between urbanization and other historical forces such as industrial capitalism, the rise of the state and modernity. It then notes that while the experience of Wuxi has unique features, urbanization during the first half of the twentieth century was a process transforming the whole of China. Finally, it argues that there is scope for comparing Chinese urbanization with other countries and regions around the world.
