Overview

Written by a team of international academics and urban planners, this volume looks at the interrelationship between globalization and urban change in the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe. The first six chapters assess the impact of such forces as foreign direct investment and European integration on the development of cities in the region. In the second half of the volume, eight case studies describe the transformation of individual cities since 1990. Particular attention is paid to the position of each capital in relation to its urban region and its national and international context. Editor Hamilton (who died in 2002) taught geography at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
