Product description


"With international scholarship and case studies from every continent, this Companion is destined to be an essential reference for anyone interested in urban regeneration. Accessible essays cover every aspect of the problems cities face worldwide and report on the solutions that have been tried using the latest research." Yvonne Rydin, Professor of Planning, Environment and Public Policy, Director of UCL Environment Institute, UCL.

"The Companion is extraordinary in the scope of the cases covered. Focusing on Europe and Asia, it points to the similarities and differences among a vast number of projects in developing and developed countries. It shows the effects of neoliberalism on regeneration programs but also the ways in which resistance to megaprojects has been effective." Susan S. Fainstein, Visiting Professor, LKY School, National University of Singapore and Senior Research Fellow, Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

"Leary and McCarthy’s impressive collection of papers is a timely reminder that urban regeneration is not confined to the glamour cities of North America or the command and control centers of the EU. Urban regeneration is global, complex, multi-faceted and not always right." Professor Robin Boyle, Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Wayne State University, USA.

"This book packs in-depth analyses of urban regeneration processes from 70 international experts into six accessible sections examining topic areas from emerging reconceptualizations of regeneration and community centered regeneration to neo-liberal perspectives and culture-led regeneration. With ambitious goals, Leary and McCarthy deliver." Mehdi Comeau in CITIES

"This volume is successful overall because the international case studies and comparisons presented help bring into focus the challenges and complexities of urban regeneration initiatives around the world."  - Fernando J Bosco 2015 (Journal of Regional ScienceVolume 55, Issue 2)

‘The companion’ is a remarkable collection of critical reviews and analyses; benefiting from case studies and empirical accounts from all corners of the world... the international diversity of contributions sets ‘The companion’ apart from other books in the field.. its breadth should ensure that it emerges at the pinnacle of the avid student’s personal ‘reading list’.  - Lee Pugalis 2015,  Journal of Urban Regeneration and Renewal, Vol. 8, 4, 413–416
