Editorial Reviews

"Saskia Sassen's collection is a unique contribution to the emerging literature on global cities and networks: first, because it assembles state-of-the-art presentations by leading researchers in the field, and second, because it gives due attention to key cities in the developing world, which perform vital roles in the new global networks but have hitherto been neglected. No one interested in this central topic of hte new urban geography can afford to miss this book.."-Sir Peter Hall, Bartlett Professor of Planning at University College London, Director of hte Institute of Community Development, and author of "Cities in Civilization "In "Global Networks, Linked Cities, Saskia Sassen extends her path-breaking work on the first tier global cities to focus on the architecture of the networks in which they are embedded. Networking among major cities is generally taken as a key indicator of involvement in globalization, yet few studies examine what those networks actually consist of. This volume plunges into that examination, and the result is a provocative and rewarding foray into the real content of several central concepts in the contemporary discussion of globalization and urban development.."-Peter Marcuse, Professor of Urban Planning, Columbia University and co-editor of "Globalizing Cities: A New Urban Spatial Order? and "Of States and Cities: The Partitioning of Urban Space "In "Global Networks, Linked Cities, Saskia Sassen extends her path-breaking work on the first tier global cities to focus on the architecture of hte networks in which they are embedded.

The individual essays study the empirical and theoretical specifications on the organizational architecture of an increasing number of transnational cities, particularly cities of the global South that are mid-range on the global hierarchy... Issues specific to Mexico, the Hormuz Corridor, Sao Paulo, Beirut, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, and Amsterdam are discussed in the twelve chapters."-Social Change and EconomicDevelopment
