Due to the lack ofdeep understanding of the global evolutionary ontology of urbanization,these researches tend to neglect the mechanism of global city futuredevelopment , failing to grasp the main lines; due to the lack of systematicunderstanding of the important variables of global city dynamism, thetrend analysis of these strategic studies tends to be discrete , not graspingthe core elements of the global cities; due to the lack of accurate grasp ofthe dynamic process of global city evolution, the vision of these strategicresearch on global cities and its positioning may be more based onimagination, rather than reasonable deduction based on history and logic.In short, existing researches on global cities are essentially a staticcomparative theory, not an evolutionary analysis. The purpose of this bookis to construct the basic framework for the dynamic evolution of globalcities, so as to explain the evolving paths that show global cities come fromwhere and go where, perfecting and deepening the theory of global cities.
