This book, by two of the world's most highly respected urban geographers, challenges the widespread vision that cities will soon disappear. They argues that the specific role of cities will become increasingly important in the new circumstances. Unless a dynamic and creative relationship between the local and the global is established, enabling cities to remain the focus of social organisation, political management and cultural expression, the enormous social and environmental problems of urbanisation will prove unmanageable.
