World cities in a world-system by Paul L Knox( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and Japanese and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities such as New York, Tokyo and London are the centres of transnational corporate headquarters, of international finance, transnational institutions, and telecommunications. They are the dominant loci in the contemporary world economy, and the influence of a relatively small number of cities within world affairs has been a feature of the shift from an international to a more global economy which took place during the 1970s and 1980s. This book brings together the leading researchers in the field to write seventeen original essays which cover both the theoretical and practical issues involved. They examine the nature of world cities, and their demands as special places in need of specific urban policies; the relationship between world cities within global networks of economic flows; and the relationship between world city research and world-systems analysis and other theoretical frameworks
World city network : a global urban analysis by Peter J Taylor( Book )

33 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World City Network interprets cities as global service centres. With the advent of multinational corporations, the traditional urban service function has 'gone global'. In order to provide services to globalizing corporate clients, the offices of major financial and business service firms across the world have created a new network. It is the myriad of flows between office towers in different metropolitan centres that form the world city network. Through an analysis of the location strategies of 100 leading global service firms across 315 cities, this book assesses cities in terms of their overall network connectivity, their connectivity by service sector, and their connectivity by world region."--Jacket

Cities in globalization : practices, policies and theories by Peter J Taylor( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite traditionally being a strong research topic in urban studies, inter-city relations had become grossly neglected until recently, when it was placed back on the research agenda with the advent of studies of world/global cities. More recently the 'external relations' of cities have taken their place alongside 'internal relations' within cities to constitute the full nature of cities. This collection of essays on how and why cities are connecting to each other in a globalizing world provides evidence for a new city-centered geography that is emerging in the twenty-first century. Cities in Globalization covers four key themes beginning with the different ways of measuring a 'world city network', ranging from analyses of corporate structures to airline passenger flows. Second is the recent European advances in studying 'urban systems' which are compared to the Anglo-American city networks approach. These chapters add conceptual vigour to traditional themes and provide findings on European cities in globalization. Thirdly the political implications of these new geographies of flows are considered in a variety of contexts: the localism of city planning, specialist 'political world cities', and the 'war on terror'. Finally, there are a series of chapters that critically review the state of our knowledge on contemporary relations between cities in globalization. Cities in Globalization provides an up-to-date assembly of leading American and European researchers reporting their ideas on the critical issue of how cities are faring in contemporary globalization and is highly illustrated throughout with over forty figures and tables
Global urban analysis : a survey of cities in globalization by Pengfei Ni( Book )

Global Urban Analysis provides a unique insight into the contemporary world economy through a focus on cities. It is based upon a large-scale customised data collection on how leading businesses use cities across the world: as headquarter locations, for finance, for professional and creative services, for media. These data - involving up to 2000 firms and over 500 cities - provide evidence for both how the leading cities, sometimes called global cities, are coming to dominate the world economy, and how hundreds of other cities are faring in this brave new urban world. Thus can the likes of Lon

Global Research of Cities : a Case of Chengdu by Peter J Taylor( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, written by the national think tank of China, presents a comprehensive analysis of the key elements and unique characteristics in Chengdu's development into a global city. To do so, it adopts both external and internal perspectives: externally, it highlights Chengdu's agglomeration and linkage so as to identify the differences in its overall development in comparison with other world cities. Internally, it explores the behavior of companies within the city as the root motive for urban development. The authors investigate how businesses grow and promote the agglomeration, linkage and diversity of cities in the growth process, helping readers understand the contribution of businesses to urban development
