    Abstract

    This collection of essays examines the sustainability concerns surrounding social and environmental conditions in the major cities of the Asia Pacific region. Issues considered include: globalisation, foreign direct investment, international migration and the changing pattern of cities. The second part of the book focuses on particular types of cities with case studies: 'post industrial capital exporting cities' such as Tokyo and Seoul; 'borderless cities' such as Hong Kong and Singapore; 'industrial cities' such as Shanghai and Bangkok; and 'amenity cities' such as Sydney.
