I will have to look into this one. I had never heard of it. Sounds very interesting and I'm sure the content will be enlightening.

Ralph Ellison's, The Invisible Man is also enlightening, if you haven't read it. I learned that white people avert their eyes rather than have eye contact with a black person. After reading that book, which is a novel, I make a point of making eye contact, if only for a moment.

Thanks Rubi!

You're clearly much better read than this ol' Oklahoma Redneck from the Southwest as you say.

I'm catching up since the wife showed me I could download books to my Ipad.

A global city, alpha city or world center, is a city generally considered to be an important node in the global economic system. The concept comes from geography and urban studies and rests on the idea that globalization can be understood as largely created, facilitated, and enacted in strategic geographic locales according to a hierarchy of importance to the operation of the global system of finance and trade.

In the scheme of things for the last five years London or New York has been the top global city in the world. Depending upon the list one is looking at Chicago and LA are usually listed too. Lately cities like SF, Miami, DC, Atlanta, and Boston are popping up on the lists.

Cities like Detroit, OKC, St. Louis, Baltimore, Philly, San Diego, Indy, or Austin, do not appear on these lists, but they often appear on favorite tourist destination lists.
