N2 - Innovation is crucial in this period of historic, global turbulence amidst seismic environmental, technological and (geo)political change. But what is innovation? 'Liberalism 2.0 and the Rise of China' challenges the typical depiction of innovation as new technologies which ‘solve’ specific ‘problems’. Innovation is presented as something much more complicated - a thoroughly social, cultural and political process with profound implications for the arrangement of power in society, and hence also a lens on emerging futures and how we can shape them. Indeed, exploring evidence from the key arena of low-carbon urban mobility innovation in the pivotal location of a rising China, this book describes the global systemic crisis of a neoliberal world order, manifest in four Great Challenges, and the embryonic emergence of an alternative global power regime: a ‘liberalism 2.0’. Forecasting a digitally-based and complexity-adept revitalization of the classical liberalism of the 19th century, as well as new Dickensian inequalities and injustices that are reminiscent of the Victorian age, this title will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as postdoctoral researchers, interested in fields such as Political Economy, contemporary China, Science & Technology, Sustainable Transitions and Mobilities.
