A global survey demonstrating the continued importance of the skyscraper, reaching well beyond the bounds of Asia, North America and Europe, to incorporate less familiar sites as far afield as Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates, as well as Uruguay and Mexico. The introduction offers an overview of the architectural and economic trends that have affected the skyscraper at the close of the 20th century and the epilogue discusses the race for the world's tallest building in the first years of the 21st Century.
