On March 28th, I will commence teaching the “Global City” course in the MPPA program at Northwestern University School of Professional Studies for the 12th time. Over the last five years I have taught this course, it is amazing how the data base continues to change. From the works of John Friedmann to Saskia Sassen, text books provide the historic and theoretical base for understanding the affect of globalization at the metropolitan level.  But they cannot keep up with the speed of this global dynamic. Fortunately there are source indices that provide data for analyzing both trends and hot spots. Ever since my undergraduate days of taking courses in demography/migration patterns, environmental economics, and comparative governments, I have had a fascination in this subject matter. I still have one of my old books — Peter Hall’s The World Cities published in 1966. $2.45.  With such a dynamic student base as we have here at Northwestern, I’m sure we will have another great learning experience.
