Cities of the World is comprehensive and presents in-depth discussions of world cities that are shaped by different historical, geographical, political, and cultural circumstances. I highly recommend this excellent text to undergraduate classes in general education, geography, planning and urban studies, international development, and to anyone interested in world cities and regions. Journal Of Geography Outstanding! This thoroughly updated classic offers a comprehensive portrayal of the character and complexity of the world's cities. Contemporary trends and issues that continue to reshape all corners of the globe unfold here in a thoroughly accessible manner. Whether one considers environmental issues, growth trends, tourism appeal, or historical context, Cities of the World delivers for the reader. Appropriate as both a textbook and reference tool, urbanists in all fields will gain from the insights that geographers present here. Students of the humanities, social sciences, and business disciplines will equally benefit. -- Truman A. Hartshorn, Georgia State University
