"This is a revised edition of the classic work that chronicles how New York, London, and Tokyo became command centers of the global economy and in the process underwent massive and parallel changes. Saskia Sassen has updated all the data in the book and thoroughly rewritten all of the chapters to engage with debates sparked by the first edition and reflect the trends in globalization that have occurred since the book came out in 1991. She has also added a new preface and a substantial new epilogue. This is a timely edition of a work that changed the way we think about cities in the global economy."--BOOK JACKET.
