'This is a topical and well crafted textbook and will be an important resource for students of urban regeneration' - Dr Mike Raco, King's College London. 'Jones & Evans (as they will surely soon be known) have written a textbook that will become ubiquitous in the bibliographies of future scholars of UK urban regeneration: a comprehensive introduction to the subject with plenty of leads to future research. Briskly written, the book covers policy, governance, competition, sustainability, design and cultural aspects of regeneration.. The book is a timely introduction to the maze of urban regeneration for students and a useful aide memoire for people who have worked in, for, with, or against urban regeneration in the United Kingdom. Useful as a handbook, a guidebook or a cheatbook, it will undoubtedly find a home on shelves around the country'- Matthew Hardy, Secretary, INTBAU. 'The area of urban regeneration has long been popular with students from a number of disciplines but has tended to lack a student-friendly overview. This is a solid attempt to address this omission' - Times Higher Education Textbook Guide. The urban landscape of the UK is undergoing its most dramatic transformation since post-war reconstruction. This volume is a systematic guide to that transformation that draws together a mass of information - from policy reports to academic studies - into a single coherent text. Examining key aspects of the process from first principles, Urban Regeneration in the UK : - introduces and contextualises the UK urban regeneration agenda - brings together state-of-the-art research around key themes in governance, sustainability, competition, and design - uses case studies of UK contemporary regeneration projects - combines academic and theoretical explorations whilst linking theory and practice - includes pedagogical features of key learning points, useful websites, a glossary and further reading. Aimed at those studying and working in the field of urban regeneration and planning, Urban Regeneration in the UK provides a highly readable introduction to urban regeneration for undergraduates, post-graduates, and practitioners.
