Transforming Glasgow: Beyond the Post-Industrial City (Hardcover)
Special Order- Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Thirty years after the city made a concerted turn towards regeneration, Glasgow, Scotland’s public health, economic health, and general quality of life remain below the average for the United Kingdom. Transforming Glasgow explores the outcomes of this process of transformation and identifies the challenges that the city still faces. Kintrea and Madgin consider whether current urban policy is up to the task of excising the remains of the city’s industrial legacy and remaking Glasgow as an economically competitive and socially just city.
