    A interdisciplinary, student focused exploration of contemporary global urban economies. It covers the theoretical alongside the empirical, with boxed examples and suggested reading and websites for every chapter.

    Cities and Economic change is a much-needed textbook, combining a sound theoretical grounding with an empirical overview of the urban economy. Specific references are made to key emergent processes and debates including splintered labour markets, informal economies, consumption, a comparative discussion of North and South, and quantitative aspects of globalization. The text is clear and readable with pedagogical features and illustrative case studies integrated throughout. The use of boxes for city examples, key questions for discussion at the end of main chapters together with suggested readings, key web sites are designed to aid learning and understanding.
