By focusing on Guangzhou's street-vending policy transformation, this article explores how exclusionary practices of urban politics in China are undermined by those who it seeks to exclude and the progressive political climate that questions the exclusionary framework. It proposes an ambivalent approach, recognized in a recent critique of revanchism, to mediate the tension between the needs to retain attractive city images and address the livelihoods of the poor in Chinese cities
