Abstract:

"The thesis of this book is that a whole range of fundamental urban changes whose causes had been building up for some time took effect in the course of the 1980s and resulted in the recasting of the shape and character of the city. Some of these changes concerned the way people lived, some had an influence on the physical form of the city, and others were connected with the relationship of one city to another. This book deals with five cities in particular: London, Paris, Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles, though it touches on many others, and it seeks to make sense of the forces that are shaping all western cities. The five are the largest, the furthest evolved, and the most important of the industrial cities, a species that went through its most violent period of growth in the nineteenth century but which then, in many cases, atrophied. In these five however, while there has been some decay, their metamorphosis into a system of interlinked, but also antagonistic cities has been the real legacy of the 1980s. Together they dominated the world's economy and cultural life, but they also had to struggle to maintain their position, against each other and potential competitors."--Introduction, page 1.
