Urban Regeneration is widely discussed but less widely understood. Fully revised with important new policy, case studies and international analysis, the Second Edition of Urban Regeneration will correct that. The 16 chapters, written by leading experts, are organised into four sections:
The Context for Urban Regeneration: The history and evolution
Major Themes and Topics: Including Housing, Community, Employment and the Environment
Key Issues in Managing Urban Regeneration: Including Legal and Organisational considerations
Experience Elsewhere and a View of the Future: Expanded section now discussing Australia and the Celtic Fringe as well as Europe and the USA
This is the essential handbook for practitioners involved in regeneration, as well as students of planning, urban studies, geography and architecture.
Dr Rachel Granger is a Reader at Leicester Castle Business School specialising in economic geography and urban economies. Her recent research focuses on the re-gentrification of hi-growth metropolitan regions as a result of mismanaged revitalisation works, and in-depth analysis of creative, digital and consumption economies using a variety of new research methods. International research projects include creative and digital economies, international investment in post-recession cities, the sharing and consumption economies, innovation in cultural heritage and the arts, live-work schemes in global cities and problem-based learning in regeneration studies. Rachel is the South East Policy Chair for the Institute of Economic Development and board member for three regeneration projects in London and the West Midlands.
