'This book adds to the literature on "service economies" by examining the role of advanced services in the transformation of cities of the Asia Pacific region. Its central aim is to show that in this context, the growth and urbanization of service industries have not followed the Western model, but have forged a new path in which advanced level services act as key drivers of economic and urban change.' - Economic Geography 2006
