Summary
"New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles - for all their differences, they are quintessentially American cities. They are also among the handful of cities in the world that can truly be called "global." This ambitious in-depth study is the first to compare them, taking into account each city's unique history and following their development from settlement to their current status as players on the international stage."--Jacket
