John Allen, Doreen B. Massey, Michael Pryke
Psychology Press, 1999 - Social Science - 354 pages
This text examines the global nature of cities - cities whose openness has shaped their dynamism and character.
It explores cities as sites of movement, migration and settlement where different peoples, cultures and environments combine. Unsettling Cities explores the mix of proximity and difference that exists in the rich and diverse texture of city life. The contributors reveal the association between the changing fortunes of cities and the power and influence of global networks.
