City: A Global History
Joel Kotkin (au)
Examines the evolution of urban life over the millennia and attempts to answer the age-old question: What makes a city great? Cities can thrive only if they remain sacred, safe, and busy. He follows the progression of the city from the early religious centers of Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and China to the imperial centers of the classical era, through the rise of the Islamic city and the European commercial capitals, ending with todayís post-industrial suburban metropolis. Looking at cities in the 21st century., Kotkin discusses the effects of shifting demographics and emerging technologies. He also considers the effects of terrorism -- how the religious and cultural struggles of the present pose the greatest challenge to the urban future.
