The Global City: New York, London, Tokyo by Saskia Sassen is a seminal geographic and sociological study about the development of the title cities into the megacentres of global economy. The book was published by Princeton University Press in 1991. Saskia Sassen (b. 1947) is a sociologist and the Professor of Urban Planning at Columbia University.
The contents of the book are divided into three parts: 1) The geography and composition of globalization; 2) The economic order of the global city; and 3) The social order of the global city. There are no images per se, but plenty of tables that demonstrate the development from various angles.
