Cities in the World-system
This book constitutes an important addition to the literature on cities. By approaching cities from a large-scale and a long-term perspective, the contributors develop a historical explanation of some of the different patterns of development that affected particular cities in their interaction with the world-economy. This historical and holistic perspective represents an improvement over most of urban sociology, where cities or aspects of cities are studied in isolation from all contingent and contextual factors. This book can be used by scholars, graduate, and upper-division undergraduate students of urban history and sociology.

From a world - system perspective , we assume that hegemony is achieved when the trade of the leading country constitutes at least 50 percent of total world trade ( see Thompson , 1988 : 47 for a similar measure ) .
The systemic concentration of trade measure ( TRADECON ) is highly correlated with the proportion ( .95 ) and ratio ( .93 ) , but surprisingly is only weakly correlated ( .19 ) with its analog for global sea power ( SEACON ) .
