Item description for Emerging World Cities in Pacific Asia (Mega-city) by Fu-Chen Lo, Lo Fu-Chen, Yue-Man Yeung & Chinese University of Hong Kong ...
Pacific Asia is the fastest growing region in the world, and its very large cities--world cities--have spearheaded economic growth and social and cultural transformation in the area.
This book examines these world cities--including Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Manila, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the major cities of China. These cities are examined as individual entities, in their regional setting, and in the context of subregional cooperative development environments.
The book provides a comprehensive appraisal of the interplay between global structural adjustments and the changing role and configuration of Asia's world cities at the close of the twentieth century. It offers a rich mosaic of data, analysis, and recommendations for scholars, planners, and policymakers in Asia and elsewhere.
