Cities in a world economy by Saskia Sassen( Book )

62 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Third Edition of Cities in a World Economy shows how certain characteristics of our turn-of-the-millennium flows of money, information, and people have led to the emergence of a new social formation: global cities. These developments give new meaning to such fixtures of urban sociology as the centrality of place and the importance of geography in our social world. Key Features: Offers a multidisciplinary perspective: This book features a cross-disciplinary approach to Urban Sociology using global examples. With both depth and clarity, this book examines the impact of global processes on the social structure of cities helping students increase their world awareness. In addition, the book strikes the perfect balance between maintaining academic rigor and employing new and innovative concepts. Includes a new chapter: The new chapter on Global Cities and Global Survival Circuits discusses the highly gendered and unequal nature of the global city and how it forces the underprivileged to live a dangerous and unpredictable life on global survival circuits. Incorporates the most recent data: This new edition updates nearly every piece of data with the most recent facts and figures available. In addition, this book introduces new concepts for understanding contemporary urban sociology. Intended Audience: This is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in Urban Sociology. It can also be used in courses such as Urban Studies, World Cities, Regional Studies, Urban Development and Planning, and Regional Development in the departments of Sociology, Urban Studies, and Geography"
The global city : New York, London, Tokyo by Saskia Sassen( Book )

49 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work chronicles how New York, London, and Tokyo became command centers for the global economy and in the process underwent a series of massive and parallel changes. What distinguishes Sassen's theoretical framework is the emphasis on the formation of cross-border dynamics through which these cities and the growing number of other global cities begin to form strategic transnational networks. All the core data in this new edition have been updated, while the preface and epilogue discuss the relevant trends in globalization since the book originally came out in 1991

Territory, authority, rights : from medieval to global assemblages by Saskia Sassen( Book )

39 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and French and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where does the nation-state end and globalization begin? In Territory, Authority, Rights, one of the world's leading authorities on globalization shows show the national state made today's global era possible. Saskia Sassen argues that even while globalization is best understood as "denationalization" it continues to be shaped channeled, and enabled by institutions and networks originally developed with nations in mind, such as the rule of law and respect for private authority."--Jacket

48 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Losing control? : sovereignty in an age of globalization by Saskia Sassen( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the rise of private transnational legal codes and supranational institutions such as the World Trade Organization and universal human rights covenants, Sassen argues that sovereignty remains an important feature of the international system, but that it is no longer confined tot he nation-state. Sassen argues that a profound transformation is taking place, a partial de-nationalizing of national territory seen in such agreements as NAFTA and the European Union
Sociology of globalization by Saskia Sassen( Book )

28 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her groundbreaking book, sociologist Saskia Sassen identifies two sets of processes that make up globalization. One is the set of global institutions, such as the World Trade Organization, global financial markets, the War Crimes Tribunals and the new global cosmopolitanism. However, there is a second set of processes, frequently ignored by most social scientists, that occur on the national and local level. These processes can include state monetary and fiscal policy, networks of activists engaged in local struggles that have an explicit or implicit global agenda, and local and national politics that are unknowingly part of global networks containing similar localized efforts. Sassen's new book focuses on the importance of place, scale and the meaning of the national to study globalization. By emphasizing the interplay between the global and the local, A Sociology of Globalization introduces readers to new forms and conditions such as global cities, transnational communities and commodity chains that are increasingly common. Sassen's expanded approach to globalization offers new interpretive and analytic tools to understand the complex ideas of global interdependence
Global networks, linked cities by Saskia Sassen( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her pioneering book The Global City, Saskia Sassen argued that certain cities in the post-industrial world have become central nodes in the new service economy, strategic sites for the acceleration of capital and information flows as well as spaces of increasing socio-economic polarization. One effect has been that such cities have gained in importance and power relative to nation-states. In this new collection of essays, Sassen and a distinguished group of contributors expand on the author's earlier work in a number of important ways, focusing on two key issues. First, they look at how information flows have bound global cities together in networks, creating a global city web whose constituent cities become "global" through the networks they participate in. Second, they investigate emerging global cities in the developing world - Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Beirut, the Dubai - Iran corridor, and Buenos Aires. They show how these globalizing zones are not only replicating many features of the top tier of global cities, but are also generating new socio-economic patterns as well
Expulsions : brutality and complexity in the global economy by Saskia Sassen( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soaring income inequality and unemployment, expanding populations of the displaced and imprisoned, accelerating destruction of land and water bodies: today's socioeconomic and environmental dislocations cannot be fully understood in the usual terms of poverty and injustice, according to Saskia Sassen. They are more accurately understood as a type of expulsion -- from professional livelihood, from living space, even from the very biosphere that makes life possible. This hard-headed critique updates our understanding of economics for the twenty-first century, exposing a system with devastating consequences even for those who think they are not vulnerable. From finance to mining, the complex types of knowledge and technology we have come to admire are used too often in ways that produce elementary brutalities. These have evolved into predatory formations -- assemblages of knowledge, interests, and outcomes that go beyond a firm's or an individual's or a government's project. Sassen draws surprising connections to illuminate the systemic logic of these expulsions. The sophisticated knowledge that created today's financial "instruments" is paralleled by the engineering expertise that enables exploitation of the environment, and by the legal expertise that allows the world's have-nations to acquire vast stretches of territory from the have-nots. Expulsions lays bare the extent to which the sheer complexity of the global economy makes it hard to trace lines of responsibility for the displacements, evictions, and eradications it produces -- and equally hard for those who benefit from the system to feel responsible for its depredations
Digital formations : IT and new architectures in the global realm by Saskia Sassen( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computer-centered networks and technologies are reshaping social relations and constituting new social domains on a global scale, from virtually borderless electronic markets and Internet-based large-scale conversations to worldwide open source software development communities, transnational corporate production systems, and the global knowledge-arenas associated with NGO networks. This book explores how such "digital formations" emerge from the ever-changing intersection of computer-centered technologies and the broad range of social contexts that underlie much of what happens in cy
Deciphering the global : its scales, spaces and subjects by Saskia Sassen( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breaking with prevailing scholarship, Deciphering the Global relocates the terms of debate surrounding globalization from the heights of global markets, states, and international corporations to the messier, more complex ground of the local, where broad globalizing trends are negotiated in interesting and often unexpected ways. Each of the essays in Saskia Sassen's collection introduces a new type of complexity and ambiguity to the study of the global, confronting questions of space and the fact that both the local and the global are increasingly multi-scalar. In turn, the chapters in this book expand the analytical terrain of the global, demanding new methodologies and interpretive frames for the study of globalization. Employing ethnographies from the United States to continental Europe, Asia, and South America, Deciphering the Global exemplifies the next wave of globalization studies and lays the groundwork for a new school in the study of the global

Ausgrenzungen Brutalität und Komplexität in der globalen Wirtschaft by Saskia Sassen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine klare und harte Kritik der Wirtschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts. Zunehmende Ungleichheit, krasse Einkommensunterschiede, Flüchtlinge, Zerstörung von Land, Wasserknappheit: Die aktuellen Verwerfungen in der globalisierten Welt können nicht mehr mit den üblichen Begriffen von Armut und Ungerechtigkeit verstanden werden. In ihrem neuen Buch schlägt die renommierte Soziologin Saskia Sassen vor, dass man sie viel besser als Ausgrenzungen verstehen muss: aus dem Berufsleben, dem Wohnort, aus der Biosphäre. Erst dieser gemeinsame Gesichtspunkt macht eine luzide politische Analyse möglich, welche die grundlegende Logik und den Zusammenhang dieser scheinbar getrennten Effekte sichtbar macht. (Quelle:

Territorio, autoridad y derechos : de los ensamblajes medievales a los ensamblajes globales by Saskia Sassen( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sassen analiza el modo en que los tres componentes de toda sociedad -territorio, autoridad y derechos- han cambiado en sí mismos y en sus relaciones a lo largo de tres ensamblajes históricos fundamentales: el medieval, el nacional y el global. Para ello, estudia la emergencia del estado-nación a través del reposicionamiento sustancial de determinadas capacidades medievales; analiza las condiciones políticas, económicas, legales o tecnológicas inscritas en nuevas lógicas organizativas que van de lo nacional hacia lo global, y examina las intersecciones puntuales entre lo territorial, la autoridad y los derechos, con especial atención al papel de las nuevas tecnologías digitales
