About this book

This new book argues that cities and citizens are not helpless victims in a global flow of events. Three crucial questions are addressed through the three part structure: What is the nature of the globalization? What resulting challenges now confront cities and localities? How can local leaders respond to this changing environment in ways which strengthen local democracy? Written by leading urban scholars in Europe and North America the book draws on a range of disciplines to enhance academic understanding and illuminate lessons for policy and practice.

Reviews

'[Globalism and Local Democracy is] a thoughtful collection of essays that brings an international perspective to a key issue for the government of our cities.' - Professor Sir Peter Hall, Institute of Community Studies, London and Bartlett School of Planning, University College London

'An excellent and accessible contribution to a topic for growing importance. It addresses all the key issues and is optimistic in seeing an increase in opportunities for local democracy at neighbourhood and city levels, and identifying new brokering roles for local government.' - Professor Wim Wiewel, Dean, College of Business Administration, Universtiy of Illinois at Chicago and President, American Collegiate Schools of Planning

'[An] important collection of essays...this book begins to provide some answers about how globalization affects different localities and citizens...the collection...contains sufficient stimulating material...causes the reader to think further about the wicked issues is addresses.' - Mike Goldsmith, University of Salford, Journal of Public Policy
