This book intends to expand our knowledge on the complex relationship between the globalizing city and the localizing world. The volume takes the stance that the conceptualization of urban life under global conditions can only be reflected from multiple points of departure. The book is meant to confront certain aspects of urban discourse and to point out differences and commonalities of the included case studies from all over the world. It seeks to explore different approaches to urbanism and globalization themes like city networks, urban politics and planning, architecture, spatial development sociology, and migration. Basic lines of discourse, their positions and critical contributions are integrated to engage the reader in the differences between various analyses of local life in times of globalization.
