Recently learnt our #Planetary#Gentrification book (Polity Press, 2016) is now out in Simplified Chinese, published by China Architectural Industry Press (中国建筑工业出版社). Yi Jin, my former PhD student and currently based at Nanjing University (Sociology), has kindly secured a few copies for me (see his image attached), and I can’t wait to open them.

It’s good to see that they have got my name in Chinese correct, but it’s interesting to find that they’ve added “Korea” in front of my name despite my UK university affiliation.
