This Handbook of Cities and Networks provides a cutting-edge overview of research on how economic, social and transportation networks affect processes both in and between cities. Exploring the ways in which cities connect and intertwine, it offers a varied set of collaborations, highlighting different theoretical, historical and methodological perspectives.
 
International contributions assess the state of the field of network analysis, presenting interdisciplinary insights that draw on theory from geography, economics, sociology, history and psychology, and outlining methodological tools that include ethnographic and qualitative approaches. Illustrating a framework for integrating the diversity of urban networks, the Handbook demonstrates this by exploring urban networks with different combinations of levels and scales, new insights and opportunities emerge.
 
Featuring focused studies on specific regions and cities, this state-of-the-art Handbook is essential reading for scholars and researchers of urban studies and regional science, particularly those focusing on the transformation of cities as connected spaces through intra and intercity networks. Its core theoretical insights will also benefit graduate students in urban studies and network analysis.
