About this book

This book contributes to the understanding of environment–economy relations from the perspective of economic geography, grounded in the institutional context of China. It demonstrates how classical economic geographies, new economic geographies, and geographies of economic globalization work together to affect the environment. It covers a series of classical topics like industrial location and industrial dynamics and some emerging fields like industrial evolution and global–local interaction and links them to environmental performance in China. The findings in this book echo the call for developing a more comprehensive and systematic research agenda of environmental economic geography. This book offers researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students in related fields both theoretical and practical considerations of environmental economic geography. It also offers insights into the policy-making relevant to China’s greening efforts.

He works in the field of environmental economic geography, investigating the human–environment interactions in the dual processes of globalization and localization. His research covers a wide range of aspects, including the environmental effect of trade expansion, industrial evolution, and landscape utilization. Cases in his research reach across multiple spatial scales (from local to global) and diverse typical areas (from less developed and eco-fragile areas to developed but eco-sensitive areas). Research findings have been widely published in international journals.
