This major comparative text on urban planning examines what have been traditionally regarded as 'world cities' (New York, London, Tokyo) and also a range of other important cities in America, Europe and Asia. The authors show the role planning has played in the way cities have responded to the forces of globalization, and argue for the importance of diverse - rather than one-size-fits-all - planning practices.

* The most authoritative and up-to-date assessment of the impact of globalization on world cities

* Comprehensive coverage of cities - over 20 cities in three global regions, including: New York, Toronto, Mexico City, Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore

* Delivers integrated and systematic coverage of the theory and practice of planning policy
