As urbanization of the world's population grows at an ever-increasing pace, the need to understand the effects of globalization on cities is at the forefront of urban studies. Traditional scholarship largely employs a framework of analysis based on the globablizing experience of Western cities. In Globalizing City, Richard Grant draws on ten years of empirical research in Accra, Ghana's capital city, to show how this African metropolis is as deeply transformed by globalization as the cities of other world regions.
