Description

Originally published in 1983 The Urban and Regional Transformation of Britain, analyses economic and social changes recorded across the cities and regions of Britain since the Barlow Report. The collection analyses the whole country at a more detailed scale than the ten Standard Regions, for which most official statistics are produced. Although there are important differences between the major regions of Britain, many of the recent processes of change appear to have operated at a local level within rather than between regions. The essays in this volume bring together change at the regional and local labour market scales and provides a comprehensive statement of urban and regional change, seeking to highlight the new spatial priorities of the 1980s.
