From this, we move to the importance of commodity flows 30 gary w. mcdonogh that have shaped the formation and function of cities as ports of trade, sites of production, and markets of consumption for millennia. Cities viewed in these ways make these flows, as studied by economics and historians, meaningful in anthropological studies. People move in ways similar to goods, as volitions meet restraints and conflict among individuals and groups; in this essay I use an example from China to illustrate the complexities of transnational movements (see Chapter 17, “Transnationality”).

The 32 gary w. mcdonogh expectations of internet access in North American education, the role of internet cafes, libraries or other access points that serve people who are less likely to have home computers, and the demands of integration of the internet into public life worldwide all differentiate global cities and citizens. Even so, emergent uses of cellphones and other mobile devices in internet access and integrated communication and the public value of social media such as Facebook or Twitter underscore the ongoing tensions of democratization and control that concentrate in cities while spreading beyond them, as so many actions of the Arab Spring in Tunis, Cairo, and Tripoli demonstrated in 2011.
