A global city, also called a power city, world city, alpha city or world center, is a city which is a primary node in the global economic network. The concept comes from geography and urban studies, and the idea that globalization is created, facilitated, and enacted in strategic geographic locales according.

      Saskia Sassen literally wrote the book on global cities back in (though her global cities work dates back well over a decade prior to that book). She gave a definition that has long struck with me. In short form, in the age of globalization, the activities of production are scattered on a global basis. from book Schlüsselwerke der Stadtforschung (pp) Saskia Sassen: The Global City.

Consolidation of infrastructure financial markets into places like New York City= During the s, markets seemed to have wielded a rhetorical and economic strength not previously accorded. However, Sassen expands on this idea.   Roger Keil is the Director of the City Institute, and Professor at the Faculty of Environmental Studies, at York University, Toronto.

Sassen aims to - unpack the concept of "the city" (p. xviii) - as a unit of analysis in sociology and economics from a global perspective. The scope of this endeavor is quite staggering and she has to bring an number of different fields under the same conceptual umbrella in order to capture the elusive character of 'the city'.Cited by: In this book Kristin Ljungkvist claims that we can better understand why local governments find it to be in their Global City’s interest to claim international political authority by exploring how the city’s role in the globalized world is constructed and narrated by: The Global City: New York, London, Tokyo.

The concept was developed on a much larger and more sophisticated scale by sociologist Saskia Sassen, whose influential book, The Global City: New York, London, Tokyo (, ), distinguished global cities especially by their role in providing advanced producer services in the world economy, making new economic products in finance, law and accountancy, for example, and where the firms.

For this purpose, the author views contemporary history as a surge toward ""the global city""; that is, as a period of global confluence, in which the values and institutions of the ""metropolis""—the West—are being absorbed and adapted by the non-metropolis (the non-Western nations).

This is an absolutely amazing book lavished with beautiful photographs and The global city book with well-written articles that reflect the latest in scholarship--a combination that is a rare treat in itself, much less when its topic is so fresh and little-known as Lisbon in the 16th century, when it was a global city bursting with exotica and The global city book goods.5/5.

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.

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. For Centuries, the world economy has shaped the life of cities.

This book is about that relationship today. Beginning in the s, the organization of economic activity entered a period of pronounced transformation. The changes were expressed in the altered structure of the world economy, and also assumed forms specific to particular places.

conceptual architecture.^ Constructs such as the global city and the global-city region are, in my reading, important elements in this new conceptual architecture. The activ-ity of naming these elements is part of the conceptual work. There are other closely linked terms which could conceivably have been used: world cities,"* "supervilles,"^ in.

Book Description Global cities all over the world are taking on new roles as they increasingly participate directly and independently in international affairs and global politics. So far, surprisingly few studies have analyzed the role of the Global City beyond its already well explicated role in the globalized economy.

This is the first book to explore how religious movements and actors shape and are shaped by aspects of global city dynamics.

Theoretically grounded and empirically informed, Religion and the Global City advances discussions in the field of urban religion, and establishes future research directions.

In this book Anthony King brings together key essays written over this period, much of it dominated by debates about the world or global city.

The Global City shows that even as the Global City engages in various global issues such as global environmental governance or counterterrorism, such pursuit will be framed and rationalized in terms of the city’s economic growth.

The quest for growth and global competitiveness are not necessarily the only available meanings attached to. This book is about the people who always get taken for granted. The people who clean our offices and trains, care for our elders and change the sheets on the bed.

Global Cities at Work draws on testimony collected from more than foreign-born workers employed in low-paid jobs in London during the early years of the twenty-first century.

By advancing the debates which surround these issues through a redefinition of the terms in which they have been developed and engagement with the everyday lives of people in a global city, this book reveals how such key concepts as community, culture, class, poverty and identity can be reconceptualized in the context of global/local : John Eade.
