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 book can be used by scholars, graduate, and upper-division undergraduate students of urban history and sociology.
