Beyond City Limits: Urban Policy and Economic Reconstructuring in Comparative Perspective
Beyond City Limits:
Urban Policy and Economic Reconstructuring in Comparative Perspective
1991 | 275 pages | PDF | 10,7 MB
This book challenges the notion that there is a single, global process of economic restructuring to which cities must submit.
The studies in this volume compare urban development in the United States, Western Europe, and Japan, demonstrating that there is significant variety in urban economic restructuring.
The contributors emphasize that the economic forces transforming cities from industrial concentrations to post industrial service centers do not exist apart from politics: all nation-states are heavily involved in the restructuring process.
