Synopsis: Abrahamson's book, accessible to undergraduates with little background in sociology or social science, investigates the effect of globalizationon the world's major cities through an exploration of both the economic and cultural dimensions associated with this phenomenon. Unlike other books on the topic, Abrahamson produces a more detailed and multi-faceted picture of these cities, covering leading urban centers such as London, New York, Tokyo, and Paris, but also branching out to other cities in the global system.

Review: The linkages between cities have become a global network, and nations have become dependent upon their major cities for global connections. In fact, the role and status of cities within their own nations are largely a function of those cities international connections. For the last twently-five years there have been dramatic changes within major cities, and in the relationships between them, caused mainly by increasing globalisation. The changes have been mainly economic or cultural, and one of the writer's principal objectives was to connect these two dimensions. This is a book which places familiar things (e.g. 'Macburgers', and a London rail link) into a larger context, whilst also explaining foreign direct investment (FDI). In conclusion, a diminution in the sovereignty of the nation state has accompanied globalisation, but Abrahamson sees no real alternative to the nation state.Ixfam Development Resources Review.I
