From the Publisher"This book is a welcome addition to the rapidly growing literature on global cities ... The individual contributors remain closely on-message and the editors are to be commended for providing a very clear statement of the central argument and for distilling the arguments into a comprehensive and convincing conclusion...The specialised nature of the topic, and the fact that this volume will be of most interest to research and final-year students of urban studies rather than to first-or second-year undergraduates. Among such an audience, it merits a wide readership." David Clark, Coventry University
"This is a highly valuable book, combining theoretical arguments with detailed empirical work. This book broadens the scholarly discussion of global cities and offers important insights into the interpretation of local and global processes in a wide range of settings." H-Urban by Mark D. Bjelland, Department of Geography, Gustavus Adolphus College, Minnesota.
"Globalizing cities, a new spatial order? is a welcome addition to a growing scholarly literature on the processes of globalization ... this volume is a substantial contribution to what is perhaps one of the most important issues confronting the future of cities." Progress in Development Studies
"These excellent essays focus primarily on recent changes in the spatial organization of selected large metropolitan areas ... By concentrating on the details, the authors have liberated us from the glosses of the global cities literature and prepared us to revise our generalizations. The debate they have opened will engage us for at least the next decade." European Planning Studies
