City matters : Competitiveness, cohesion and urban governance Paperback / softback

Edited by Martin Boddy, Michael Parkinson


This book provides, in a single volume, a review of the findings of the largest ever programme of cities research in the UK, the Economic and Social Research Council's 'Cities: Competitiveness and Cohesion programme'.

Leading experts present the findings of this wide-ranging programme organised around themes of competitiveness, social cohesion and the role of policy and governance.

The book develops our understanding of key processes, issues and concepts critical to cities and urban change and examines a large body of evidence on a wide range of policy issues at the heart of current debates about the performance of cities and the prospects for urban renaissance.

City matters is essential reading for all policy makers, practitioners, analysts and academics with an interest or involvement in urban issues.
