Format: Paperback
An excellent book sold at a fair price and delivered by return post by Royal Mail. The book provides a contextualised history, critical but fair,of the process of urban decline and regeneration. The multiplicity of authors ensure that all aspects are covered. It is valuable to have a contemporary history of the city as there ample more antiquated and antiquarian studies available.The positive and negative elements of regeneration and its impact are covered.

Format: Paperback
I studied Kevin Ward's course at Manchester University all about the new urban geographies and got 72% in his exam so I feel as if I am able to comment on his work.
The fact is, as with his Phd thesis I read - this book concentrates too much on Manchester City Council and other politicians rather than what has actually set Manchester apart from its contemporaries over recent years. Its people. People like Ian Brown, Tony Wilson, Morrissey, Johnny Marr, John Squire, John Robb, Sean Rider, Martin Merchant and the guys behind rottingoffal.com.
They ignore the hige buzz in Manchester at the moment, To quote Brian Redheads wonderful book "ask anyone in Manchester what the second city in England is and they will answer... its a straight choice between London and Birmingham. Implicit in the answer is that Manchester is the first city in the land".
