Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Cities in a Globalizing World' stresses that quality of governance can determine whether the burgeoning cities of the developing world can become global centers of opportunity or urban examples of over crowding and underachievement.The book examines cases where the forces of globalization, urbanizations, and governance come together most successfully. It demonstrates that services tend to be better where citizens have access to information on the budget (a measure of transparency and accountability) or where information was available on how to start a business (a measure of transparency and responsiveness to firms).The book is intended to guide city managers on various ways of enhancing services and human resources, which will, in turn, attract trade, finance, and tourism to boost economic growth.

Book News Annotation:

Léautier, assembles seven essays by contributors from the World Bank Institute (of which she is vice-president) and the World Bank examining the connection between globalization, urbanization, and local governance, with a focus on African cities. They consider the effects of globalization on cities, the resulting policy implications, urban infrastructure and performance, the impact of global business, technology, and provide an analysis of local governance using game theory. The book is intended for policy makers and students and practitioners in urban management. No index is supplied. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
