Global Cities examines the distinctive commercial, residential, and spatial features of the major cities of the contemporary world--cities housing the financial and cultural activities that are most consequential for everyone, regardless of where they live. The development of these influential cities is intimately related to the emergence of modern telecommunications, the growth of multinational corporations, the internationalization of economic activity, and the increased movement of cultural symbols and artifacts across national lines.
Accessible to readers with little background in sociology or social science, Global Cities analyzes numerous contemporary issues to illustrate concepts and processes pertaining to the most significant global cities. These concrete examples facilitate students' general understanding and show them the contemporary relevance of the material. The book offers a detailed and multifaceted picture of such leading urban centers as London, New York, Tokyo, and Paris, but also branches out to other important cities in the world. It analyzes both the internal features of the cities and the nature of their connections with each other. Global Cities is ideal for undergraduate courses in urban sociology and other social sciences.

Review:

The linkages between cities have become a global network, and nations have become dependent upon their major cities for global connections. In fact, the role and status of cities within their own nations are largely a function of those cities international connections. For the last twently-five years there have been dramatic changes within major cities, and in the relationships between them, caused mainly by increasing globalisation. The changes have been mainly economic or cultural, and one of the writer's principal objectives was to connect these two dimensions. This is a book which places familiar things (e.g. 'Macburgers', and a London rail link) into a larger context, whilst also explaining foreign direct investment (FDI). In conclusion, a diminution in the sovereignty of the nation state has accompanied globalisation, but Abrahamson sees no real alternative to the nation state.Ixfam Development Resources Review.I
