The world of modern capitalism is a global network both of corporations and of cities – ′world command cities′ such as New York, London and Tokyo; ′specialized command cities′ which concentrate on particular industries, such as Detroit; ′state command cities′ such as Washington and Brasilia; and so on. These cities, linked by an organizational web of transnational corporations, are the pins holding the capitalist world economy together in the new international division of labour.

In The Capitalist City a group of eminent scholars analyzes the intricate relationships among cities, state policies and urban politics at a time of economic restructuring at global, national and local levels to provide an original and timely contribution to one of the most important areas of political and social science.
