'Throw out your old atlas. The new version is here' Walter Kirn, author of Up in the Air

From Dubai to Amsterdam, Memphis to South Korea, a new phenomenon is reshaping the way we live and transforming the way we do business: the aerotropolis.

A combination of giant airport, planned city and business hub, the aerotropolis will be at the heart of the next phase of globalization. Drawing on a decade's worth of cutting-edge research, John Kasarda and Greg Lindsay offer a visionary look at how the metropolis of the future will bring us together - and how to make the most of this opportunity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fascinating * Guardian *
Provocative * Financial Times *
Dazzling ... Aerotropolis points out that we can still address the oldest needs but in new and liberating ways * Time *
Fascinating and important ... blend[s] jargon-free scholarship with shoe-leather reporting to tell readers why they're living and working as they are ... Kasarda and Lindsay are onto something big * Bloomsberg Businessweek *
The closest thing to a real-world vision to rival that of [H. G.] Wells ... a mind-expanding ride that reminds us, once again, that humanity needs no apocalypse to reinvent itself * World Politics Review *
Aerotropolis redraws the world map ... This lively, thought-provoking book is must reading for anyone interested in how and where we will live and work in a truly global era -- Richard Florida (author of THE GREAT RESET)
Thrilling ... the authors are undoubtedly right * Wall Street Journal *
If you want to be way ahead of the curve in understanding one of the most important drivers of change for the 21st century, read this book -- Paul Romer (founder of Charter Cities)
Fascinating ... The brave new world is on the way, and it's coming in by air * Kirkus Reviews *
An insightful, lavishly researched account, full of the micro-data of interconnectedness: the far-flung factories that produce our computers and flat-screen televisions, the state of the art hospitals in Thailand angling for Western customers priced out of the American health care system * Los Angeles Review of Books *
A prismatic display of the future of the global economy through a sharp and revealing new lens. It makes the mind travel * Barnes & Noble Review *
Required reading for economists, business studies students, architects, urban planners, sociologists - and more than a few novelists and essayists * Independent *
