Planning World Cities : Globalization and Urban Politics, Paperback / softback Book

Planning World Cities : Globalization and Urban Politics Paperback / softback

Part of the Planning, Environment, Cities series


This major comparative text on urban planning, and the global and regional context in which it takes place, examines what have been traditionally regarded as 'world cities' (New York, London, Tokyo) and also a range of other important cities in America, Europe and Asia.

The authors show the role planning has played in the way cities have responded to the forces of globalization, and argue for the importance of diverse - rather than one-size-fits-all - planning practices. This fully revised second edition systematically brings the debates on the impact of globalization right up to date and provides integrated coverage of the latest planning theory and practice.

It also contains extended analysis of the implications of the rapid growth of Chinese cities such as Shanghai, Hong Kong and Beijing.

New material is included on the impact of globalization on poorer mega-cities like Mumbai and Johannesburg.
