Summary
The first part of the book examines globalization, foreign direct investment, international migration, and the question of cities and their changing patterns and meanings. Each chapter provides a broad set of dynamics that cut across the world and find particular expression in the Asia Pacific region. The later sections of the book focus on particular types of cities. First among these is the post-industrial capital-exporting city, with Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei as examples. The second is the borderless or entrepôt city, citing Hong Kong and Singapore, whose special status as city-states has allowed a unique type of growth. The industrial city is exemplified by chapters on Shanghai, Jabotabek, and Bangkok, cities that have experienced very high globalization-driven growth but have also become highly polluted environments, in sharp contrast with Singapore and the central area of Hong Kong. The final section focuses on amenity cities: Sydney and Vancouver are the two cases examined. These chapters demonstrate how environmental awareness can be a part of urban growth, and provide evidence that globalization is not promoting urban environmental and social sustainability
