Editorial Reviews


This edited volume has taken us a step forward in advancing our understanding of global cities and their immediate functional and spatial regions in contemporary globalization. I would recommend it to both geographers and urban theorists and, as a course text, for those who are interested in globalization and world cities. Progress in Human Geography This comprehensive collection hits some important academic and policy targets in very timely fashion ... this is a book that will surely be a useful reference point for both students and researchers alike. International Planning Studies For those new to the debate over the nexus of global-urban relations, this volume is a useful introduction to a number of the key issues and concerns of this approach, although familiarity with the global city framework would contextualize some of the discussion. For those more familiar with the extant literature, this collection has enough that is new to encourage reflection. International Affairs I strongly recommend this book ... it begins to provide us with a way to think across traditionally urban and regional scales of analysis and dialogue. That alone is a welcome addition to the now massive, if often fragmented, literature on globalization and its manifold consequences. Regional Studies Well-edited and multi-faceted. Regional Studies
