2015. In R. Paddison and T. Hutton (eds.), Cities and Economic Change: Restructuring and Dislocation in the Global Metropolis (Los Angeles: Sage).

Cities and Economic change is a much-needed textbook, combining a sound theoretical grounding with an empirical overview of the urban economy. Specific references are made to key emergent processes and debates including splintered labour markets, informal economies, consumption, a comparative discussion of North and South, and quantitative aspects of globalization.
