The World's Urban Future is analysed through a number of critical themes which relate to globalization, such as urban corridors, Islamic cities, new technologies, transport and telecommunications, financial centres, and food issues. World cities are discussed not simply for the functions they perform in the global economy, but also to examine the processes by which they came to perform those functions
