Product Description


'This book offers an extremely rich variety of (short) chapters on aspects of flows in network and knowledge societies, highlighting the evolutionary shift in focus from cities and states to places in urban networks and mosaics, in which urbanization and globalization themes are blended. The book is definitely a joyful read for all those researchers interested in urban networks and world cities.'- Martijn J. Burger and Frank G. van Oort, Journal of Regional Science; 'An academic work of greatest interest to students and scholars of urban studies, urban planning, urban anthropology, urban history, urban geography, and urban sociology.'- M.E. Pfeifer, Choice; 'As a Handbook, this volume expertly summarizes and reviews the current world cities research. Moreover, it does so in a way that is user-friendly, with short and accessible chapters organized in a coherent framework. Thus, students and researchers new to the area of world cities stand to benefit the most from this book. Supplemented with just a few classic articles, it provides a comprehensive introduction and lays the preliminary groundwork that would be necessary to undertake research on world cities. Likewise, established world cities researchers will find it a ready reference and convenient source for preparing literature reviews. Indeed, it sets an example for the organization and accessibility that future contributions in the world cities literature - both edited volumes and research articles - should aim for.' - Zachary Neal, Economic Geography --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
