This chapter examines whether gentrification is an effective means to describe the changes urban China is undergoing. It discusses the strategic reasons for studying ‘gentrification’ in China and the potential shortcomings. It is especially concerned that ‘gentrification’ research in China may obscure a more contextually relevant understanding of urban inequality and that rebalancing the equation towards ‘the particular’ might isolate Chinese urbanism in its own parochial frame.

Keywords:   China, context, parochial frame, Chinese urbanism
