Thirty years after Glasgow turned towards regeneration, indicators of its built environment, its health, economic performance and its quality of life remain below UK averages. This interdisciplinary study examines the ongoing transformation of Glasgow as it has transitioned from a de-industrial to a post-industrial city during the 21st Century. Looking at diverse issues of urban policy, regeneration, and economic and social change, it considers the evolving lived experiences of Glaswegians.
Contributors explore the necessary actions required to secure the gains of regeneration and create an economically competitive, socially just and sustainable city, establishing a theory that moves beyond post-industrialism that serves as a model for similar cities globally.
