Economic restructuring and demographic change have in recent years, placed much strain on urban areas the world over, with the effects falling disproportionately on neighbourhoods that were previously underpinned by industry and manufacturing. This has presented policy makers and... city planners with a binary choice - to move with resist change and stagnate or to move with the times and risk leaving large sections of the population behind. Attempts to alleviate these problems have been increasingly imaginative with the bricks and mortar of physical infrastructure accompanied by attempts to emphasize culture and heritage. The contributors to this book argue that an understanding of specific communities' nature, place and space should be central to these efforts and their case studies of good and less good emanate from the four corners of the globe - from the United States to Iran; from the United Kingdom to Canada.
