Liverpool Beyond the Brink : The Remaking of a Post Imperial City, Hardback Book

Liverpool Beyond the Brink : The Remaking of a Post Imperial City Hardback



Liverpool Beyond the Brink is a fascinating commentary on the economic decline thatcaused the physical, social and political fragmentation of the imperial city during the1970s and the efforts since then to revive and reconnect it.

It charts Liverpool's fall inthe 1980s, its gradual normalisation in the 1990s, its staggering achievements and, asa European city in the first part of this century, its efforts to be ambitious in an age ofausterity.

This thought-provoking work asks: how far has Liverpool come and wheredoes it now stand in comparison with thirty years ago and alongside other cities in theUK?

What were the most important forces driving change? Who helped the most andwho helped the least? Who and where gained the most and who and where gainedthe least?

Finally, the author asks what is next for Liverpool: what are the currentchallenges for the city?

Liverpool Beyond the Brink identifies the key economic, socialand political challenges facing the city today to ensure there is increased productivity,future development is high quality and that the benefits of the city's renaissance areexperienced by all the people in Liverpool in all parts of the city.
