Abstract: The new book of Professor Wu Fulong, Planning for Growth: Urban and Regional Planning in China, interrogating the unique characteristics of China’s urban and regional planning, as well as the differences between China and the West, provides a fresh, inspiring and convincing perspective for both Chinese and foreign readerships to understand Chinese planning. The book provides a comprehensive review of the history of urban planning evolution in China, across the late Qing Dynasty, the Republic of China, to present. The focal point of the book, planning for growth, has been carefully explored. It highlights that the formation of the urban planning system of China is built on China’s specific historical contexts, especially upon the specific political and institutional scaffold of China. In this vein, the book contributes to the growing literature on urban growth and planning of the ‘worlding’ Global South, it also reshapes our understandings of dynamic planetary urbanization in the earlier 21 st century.
