From recession to renewal : The impact of the financial crisis on public services and local government Paperback
Edited by Joanna Richardson
The banking collapse and ensuing global financial crisis has been the subject of much analysis and speculation.
One growing certainty is that there will be an impact on the delivery of public services and on local government and governance.
This topical book examines and debates the challenges posed, on a local, European and global level, by the imperative to balance a fiscal need for smaller public expenditure with a social need for strong governance and protection of the most vulnerable in UK society.
Leading academics in the field of local governance contribute to a diverse set of analyses on the impact of the financial crisis.
