    a| Annotation b| <p>Exploring the connections between globalization and urbanization, this notable book&nbsp;places particular emphasis&nbsp;on understanding the economic function of global cities, the political process of globalizing cities, and the cultural significance of cosmopolitan cities. </p><p>The book explores the meaning of the globalizing project in cities: </p><ul><li>the maintaining, securing and increasing of urban economic competitiveness in a global world</li><li>the reimagining of the city</li><li>the rewriting of the city for both internal and external audiences</li><li>the construction of new spaces and the hosting of new events. </li></ul><p>Specific chapters look at the significance of signature architects, the hosting of the Summer Olympics and the role of the super-rich. The main thesis of the book is that this discourse of globalizing is a major force in the restructuring of cities around the world. </p>
