'The culmination of two decades of work developing a new methodology and building the largest available data set on cities in a global world. This is an extraordinary advance for the now urgent need to measure the diverse and variable connections among cities across borders and time-zones.'- Saskia Sassen, author of The Global City and Professor, Columbia University
'Intensified business connections among cities form one of the key expressions of contemporary globalization; their nature and geography are constantly changing. Global Urban Analysis provides the most comprehensive investigation of such connections that has ever been undertaken. Based on a sophisticated theorization of the global urban system, well-crafted methodological tools and an awesome trove of empirical data, this book is a truly path-breaking analysis of globalized urbanization. This is an essential resource for all who are concerned to understand and to influence the changing shape of our hyperurbanized world.'- Neil Brenner, Professor of Sociology and Metropolitan Studies, New York University

'I can recommend Global Urban Analysis as a benchmark volume for planners and others who study the changing world and its major cities.' - Edward J. Malecki, Journal of Planning and Education and Research
