David A. Westbrook argues that we live in "the city of gold"--a global, cosmopolitan polity where politics are done through markets, and where global capital markets, not states, have become the dominant force in our social life. In this wide-ranging, multi-tiered exploration of our contemporary global political economy, he touches on four major themes: the historical foundation of the city of gold, an assessment of its political scope, its current discontents, and ways to make a better--albeit imperfect--world from within it.

David A. Westbrook is Professor of Law and Floyd H. & Hilda L. Hurst Faculty Scholar at SUNY-Buffalo. He is also the author of City of Gold: An Apology for Global Capitalism in a Time of Discontent (Routledge 2003).
