We once built cities around harbors or railroad terminals, which led to the familiar shapes of Amsterdam; Venice, Italy; New York; and Chicago. But the cities built to take advantage of a hypercompetitive global economy are taking shape around something else instead: the airport. In Aerotropolis: The Way We’ll Live Next, Greg Lindsay explores how air travel and transportation are largely responsible for the shape and scope—and winners and losers—of globalization.

Greg Lindsay writes frequently about the intersection of transportation, urbanization and globalization. He is a contributing writer for Fast Company, a visiting scholar at New York University and an affiliate of the New England Complex Systems Institute.
