'The Global Cities Reader is another welcome title to the Routledge Urban Reader Series and forms an invaluable collection of key narratives for any student or academic interested in the multiplicity of debates surrounding globalization and its impact upon the physical, economic, cultural and social nature of cities' - Progress in Human Geography 31(1)

'The book captures the diversity of recent debates and some of the controversy, including contributions from those scholars who find the global city concept has some basis on reality and those who are more sceptical.' Edition 22.1 of Planning Practice and Research 'This edited volume is a must-have for urban researchers, and by far the best option for anyone teaching a course on global cities.' Ben Derudder, Cities 'For me the success of this particular volume lies entirely in its ability to ride against the conventional view. There is no other global cities book on the market that can dispense with so much material and yet retain such a strong context.' - Economic Geography Research Group 'The Global Cities Reader is another welcome title to the Routledge Urban Reader Series and forms an invaluable collection of key narratives for any student or academic interested in the multiplicity of debates surrounding globalization and its impact upon the physical, economic, cultural and social nature of cities' - Progress in Human Geography 31(1) 'Written by the very scholars who have shaped our understanding of global cities, there is no book currently on the market that comes close to matching The Global Cities Reader for its breadth of coverage and the ease at which the material can be accessed. When it comes to introducing the conceptual elements of global cities, The Global Cities Reader is an invaluable gateway for newcomers to global cities research, and provides the starting point for understanding this dynamic, diverse, and distinguished research field.' - Dr John Harrison, Loughborough University, UK for The Economic Research Group of RGS-IBG 'The editors provide key input not just through their selection, but also through an excellent introductory essay, by providing introductions to each part to set readings in context, and by supplying long bibliographies in each part...This is a very accessible volume for everybody with an interest in what is happening to contemporary cities.' - Peter J. Taylor, Loughborough University, UK for The Journal of the American Planning Association
