In this book, Edward Burtynsky presents photographs of the remnant and newly established zones of Chinese industrialization—those places created while realizing the “glory” of wealth for a powerful civilization yearning to move forward and join the ranks of modern nations. Using diplomatic channels, Burtynsky has gained rare access to these sites, creating images that are at once arresting and unsettling. These photographs afford us privileged glimpses of the vast social and economic transformation currently underway in China.
