City Worlds by Doreen Massey
Book DescriptionFor the first time in history, half of the worlds population is living in mega-cities. Never before have we confronted such a geography of the worlds people. Analysing cities through spatial understanding, City Worlds explores how different worlds within the city are brought into close proximity. The authors outline new ways to address the ambiguities of cities: their promise and potential, their problems and threats.

Books By Author Doreen Massey
World City, Paperback (August 2007)
Cities around the world are striving to be global. This new book by Doreen Massey sets the global city in its broader geographical and political context. World City tells this story through London, one of the greatest of these global cities asking the question that should be asked of any city: what does this place stand for?.
For Space, Paperback (February 2005)
Presenting an impassioned argument for revitalising our imagination of space, Doreen Massey takes on some well-established assumptions from philosophy, and some familiar ways of characterising the twenty-first century world, and shows how they restrain our understanding of both the challenge and the potential of space.
Unsettling Cities, Paperback (February 1999)» View all books by Doreen Massey
