Professor of Sociology Jerome Hodos' book Second Cities: Globalization and Local Politics in Manchester, England, and Philadelphia, earned the Urban History Association's Kenneth Jackson Best Book Award, an annual honor presented for the best work relating to North American Urban History. Hodos will received the award Oct. 27 at the biennial UHA conference in New York City. The book explores the economics, culture, migration patterns and other qualities of Manchester and Philadelphia, comparing urban centers that are often viewed as second fiddles to their larger counterparts on the global scene.
