Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, policy for inner city regeneration underwent a transformation from a reliance on central and local government activity and the use of public funds, to a much heavier dependence on private sector activities and private investment. In The Enterprise Culture and the Inner City, the authors offer a vigorous and critical investigation of government policy and, in response to the result of the 1992 general election and the implications of the Olympia and York Canary Wharf project, present a credible prediction for the future (or lack of future) of the inner city.


`a fascinating and highly readable account of the development of urban policy over the last 20 years … will appeal to students of public policy and urban studies as well as to practitioners in central and local government and organisations involved in inner city initiatives.' - Local Government Studies

`… is a captivating and timely book which is well written and will be essential reading for students and lecturers of urban policy and planning, professionals and for central and local government administrators.' - Town & Country Planning
