This volume looks at the temporal and volatile ways in which Frankfurt and Tel Aviv engage the global economy and function as nodes within global networks. Drawing on a combination of qualitative and quantitative empirical studies of leading sectors, it systematically analyzes the process of network formation and highlights the role of national and regional policy. It will be of interest to academics, researchers, practitioners and policymakers working in urban and economic geography, public policy and economic development.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book grew out of a three year collaborative research effort . . The researchers explored the relatively new phenomenon of globalization . . It is a worthwhile book to read and since it is composed of independent chapters, written by different authors, it can also be read selectively. . it provides a nice methodological framework for future investigation of other case studies in which cities in different parts of the world emerge as nodes in the global economy." (Daniel Shefer, The Annals of Regional Science, Vol. 39 (2), 2005)
