From the Publisher"This book is a welcome addition to the rapidly growing literatureon global cities ... The individual contributors remain closelyon-message and the editors are to be commended for providing a veryclear statement of the central argument and for distilling thearguments into a comprehensive and convincing conclusion...Thespecialised nature of the topic, and the fact that this volume willbe of most interest to research and final-year students of urbanstudies rather than to first-or second-year undergraduates. Amongsuch an audience, it merits a wide readership." David Clark,Coventry University

Byconcentrating on the details, the authors have liberated us fromthe glosses of the global cities literature and prepared us torevise our generalizations. The debate they have opened will engageus for at least the next decade." European PlanningStudies
