Description

Manchester, England, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are what sociologist Jerome Hodos calls second cities-viable alternatives to well-known global cities such as London and New York. In Second Cities, Hodos provides a thought-provoking, comparative look at these cities as he considers how Manchester and Philadelphia have confronted problems of globalization over the past two centuries.
