bookposted on 01.10.2018, 12:35 by Michael Hoyler, Christof Parnreiter, Allan Watson
Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
Global City Makers provides an in-depth account of the role of powerful economic actors in making and un-making global cities. Engaging critically and constructively with global urban studies from a relational economic geography perspective, the book outlines a renewed agenda for global cities research. Focusing on financial services, management consultancy, real estate, commodity trading and maritime industries, the detailed studies in this volume are located across the globe to incorporate major world cities such as London, New York and Tokyo as well as globalizing cities including Mexico City, Hamburg and Mumbai.
