As metropolitan regions continue to fuse into giant megalopolises, nations are confronted with new challenges for governing large metropolitan regions. This monograph addresses three main themes in the burgeoning study of global cities and regional governance in a comparative context. First, what is the importance of city regionalism in the world economy and how are they formed? Second, what is the politics of city regionalism and what political-administrative forms can it take? Third, are these processes the same in China and the West? Copyright © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
