Cities in the World-System: Studies in the Political Economy of the World-System

Synopsis

The contributors to this volume question the boundaries and limitations that are imposed on the study of cities by urban sociology. They pose issues from a long-term and large-scale perspective and present them in a relational framework. The book's first part deals with places outside of western Europe and with times that preceded the establishment of the European-based capitalist world-economy. The articles in part two discuss the different aspects of the concept of hegemony and the establishment of domination as these apply to cities in the world-system. In part three the focus shifts back to extra-European zones where the patterns of transformation around cities under the aegis of capitalist world-economy are examined.
