9780415323451: The Global Cities Reader (Routledge Urban Reader Series)
Críticas:

'The book captures the diversity of recent debates and some of the controversy, including contributions from those scholars who find the global city concept has some basis on reality and those who are more sceptical.' Edition 22.1 of Planning Practice and Research

'This edited volume is a must-have for urban researchers, and by far the best option for anyone teaching a course on global cities.' Ben Derudder, Cities

'For me the success of this particular volume lies entirely in its ability to ride against the conventional view. There is no other global cities book on the market that can dispense with so much material and yet retain such a strong context.' - Economic Geography Research Group

'The Global Cities Reader is another welcome title to the Routledge Urban Reader Series and forms an invaluable collection of key narratives for any student or academic interested in the multiplicity of debates surrounding globalization and its impact upon the physical, economic, cultural and social nature of cities' - Progress in Human Geography 31(1)

'Written by the very scholars who have shaped our understanding of global cities, there is no book currently on the market that comes close to matching The Global Cities Reader for its breadth of coverage and the ease at which the material can be accessed. When it comes to introducing the conceptual elements of global cities, The Global Cities Reader is an invaluable gateway for newcomers to global cities research, and provides the starting point for understanding this dynamic, diverse, and distinguished research field.' - Dr John Harrison, Loughborough University, UK for The Economic Research Group of RGS-IBG 

 

'The editors provide key input not just through their selection, but also through an excellent introductory essay, by providing introductions to each part to set readings in context, and by supplying long bibliographies in each part....This is a very accessible volume for everybody with an interest in what is happening to contemporary cities.' - Peter J. Taylor, Loughborough University, UK for The Journal of the American Planning Association


Reseña del editor:

Providing the first comprehensive survey of new interdisciplinary scholarship on globalized urbanization, this important volume contains fifty selections from classic writings by authors such as John Friedmann, Michael Peter Smith, Saskia Sassen, Peter Taylor, Manuel Castells and Anthony King, as well as major contributions by other international scholars of global city formation.

Classic and contemporary case studies of globalizing cities serve to illuminate global city theory within Europe, North America and East Asia, whilst contributing authors explore key topics including:

  • the histories and geographies of globalized urbanization
  • the social and economic order of globalizing cities
  • pathways of globalized urbanization in the older industrialized world, the developing world and on the ‘margins’ of the world economy
  • state restructuring, urban governance and socio-political contestation in globalizing cities
  • culture, identity and representation in globalizing cities
  • emerging issues and debates in contemporary research on globalized urbanization.

Containing wide-ranging discussions on major theories, methods, themes and debates, and a combination of theoretical and methodological contributions, comparative analyses and detailed case studies, this key textbook will appeal to a broad interdisciplinary readership at undergraduate and graduate levels in urban, globalization, development, cultural, and environmental studies.
