Title: Global Cities/Local Sites
Authors: Straw, Will

Issue Date: 15-Jul-2009

Abstract: A multi-media collection of essays on seven world cities, in which key global issues—flows of information, images, people and products—are explored through the analysis of local sites. These issues include new forms of social and cultural mix, new urban projects (often reworkings of historical locations), new forms of urban practice in public space, and new or stubbornly traditional but subtly reconfigured discursive formations.
