Learning from Shenzhen details the progression of Shenzhen from experiment to official model, showing how the Maoist division of Chinese society into urban and rural territories was reconstituted in Shenzhen as a spatial division of planned and un-planned experimental spaces. This resulted in new formations of borders, citizenship status, and rural urbanization, anticipating social transformation at municipal, national, and international levels and ultimately reconfiguring the meaning of collective life in China today.
