In 1978, 18% of the population in China lived in urban areas. Since then the number of inhabitants in cities has increased approximately 1% per annum and currently makes up 60% of the total population. New infrastructures and settlements have gradually modified the landscape, transformed property rights, swept away administrative boundaries, and gobbled up rural spaces and villages. Understanding the rapid, disruptive process of Chinese urbanisation is not easy.
