The Resurgent City

The Resurgent City

(p.1) 1 The Resurgent City
Social Economy of the Metropolis

Allen J. Scott

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with how modern cities (and large metropolitan areas) have changed over time, how they dealt with urbanization, and the discussion of issues that arose from these changes. It discusses the socio-geographic constitution of cities, in which it explains that defining a modern society might be difficult, and might raise controversies, if concrete definitions do not really suggest the way people in metropolitan areas live. It further explores the happenings in the evolution of these areas in the 21st century: emerging new types of economies, globalization, and life and politics in these areas.

Keywords:   urbanization, globalization, economics, cities, metropolitan areas, socio-geographic constitutions, evolution of urban areas
