Cities, Enterprises and Society on the Eve of the 21st Century


(edited with A. Scott), Francis Pinter, London. 1997.
(ISBN: 978-1855674042) 
This collection of essays provides a review and restatement of concepts and analytical insights about the relations between the dynamics of the production system and urban society. A number of questions guide the central debates in the individual chapters. These questions include: how have large cities and city systems developed in the context of economic globalization and the restructuring processes of the international economy? What are the restructuring strategies of firms within the urban economy? How have social and political harmonization and polarization in urban society been affected by entrepreneurial strategies? And what has been the response of other urban participants, and in particular local authorities to economic restructuring?
