Cities in a Global Society (URBAN AFFAIRS ANNUAL REVIEWS)
Gary Gappert, Richard V. KnightISBN: 0803933207;
As the year 2000 approaches, urbanized areas are entering a new era -- one which will be shaped primarily by their response to powerful global forces -- environmental and economic. The contributors suggest that cities should begin to assess their role ina global society and establish their strategic position and comparative advantage in the global marketplace. They argue that what cities need are policies and programmes which enable them to be more responsive to opportunities which are being created as national barriers and market regulations are removed.
