Product description


'This original and timely book is one of the first to come to grips with London's changing politics and economics in the wake of the on-going global financial crisis. It brings together new contributions and insightful assessments of past trends to provide a convincing account of the relationships between the city's globalised financial and creative industries, its governance, and the well-being of its citizens. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in contemporary urban studies and the impacts of the financial crisis on urban development and change.' Mike Raco, University College London, UK 'The rise of London, with New York, as the leading financial center of the global economy is the most significant event in the history of Britain since the end of the imperial era. It affects profoundly every aspect of British life, from the geographical and functional balance of the economy to the values and culture of British society. This book does justice to this huge, sprawling subject. Written for the most part by academics at the University of East London, a stone's throw from The City, It brings a sharp multidisciplinary focus to its subject matter, and suggests that, with the rise of this Northern Dubai, Britain has struck a Faustian bargain with the now discredited masters of the financial universe. A milestone study.' Simon Head, New York University, USA and St Antony's College, Oxford, UK
