Globalization and the world of large cities

Source(s):  United Nations University (UNU)

This book is a major contribution to the study of urbanization and globalization. It has built upon a series of regional research projects focused on mega-cities. Some findings featured in this volume form a basis for a comprehensive survey of how globalization has impacted upon urban growth and structures in different parts of the world. Rich in theoretical and policy perspectives, the book is balanced by cross-regional and cultural empirical analyses, data and illustrations, and its conclusions will be helpful to scholars and planners in developed and developing nations. The world’s urban future is analysed through a number of critical themes which relate to globalization, such as urban corridors, Islamic cities, new technologies, transport and telecommunications, financial centres, and food issues.
