A renowned scholar compares America's three global cities-now in paperback!
New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles-for all their differences, they are quintessentially American cities. They are also among the handful of cities on the earth that can be called "global." Janet L. Abu-Lughod's book is the first to compare them in an ambitious in-depth study that takes into account each city's unique history, following their development from their earliest days to their current status as players on the global stage.
Janet L. Abu-Lughod, professor emerita of sociology of Northwestern University and the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research, has been writing about and studying cities for more than fifty years. In 1999 she received the Robert and Helen Lynd Award for distinguished lifetime contributions to the study of cities.
