|Description:||The papers in this book were first presented at a conference at the Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, Italy, better known as the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, in August 2002. The conference was a wonderful experience from both a professional and a hedonistic perspective. It was supported by travel funds and payments in-kind (food and accommodation) from the Rockefeller Foundation, and the editors are very grateful for this support which made the conference, a special issue of the Annals of Regional Science, and this book possible. The idea was to focus on the specific urban impacts of globalization and to give substantial but not 100% attention to the major regions in the developing world; scholars from 12 countries participated in the book. This is not the first research project on this very important topic, and it will not be the last. We hope that it contributes to this interesting debate|
