Conclusion With this introductory chapter we have attempted to diversify and nuance the meanings of translocality for China. Rather than present an overly unitary paradigm, we have emphasized differences at several levels. Most fundamental to our argument is that the contemporary translocality we see documented in most of the chapters is an artifact of China’s economic and social unevenness. Despite connotations of grassroots connectedness and lateral ties, we insist that Chinese translocal processes arise out of and reproduce the constitutive inequalities of China’s market reform era.
