REMAKING LONDON: DECLINE AND REGENERATION IN URBAN CULTURE. Ben Campkin. I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, London, 2013. International Library of Human Geography, 19. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Palgrave Macmillan, New York. 264 pp. with 41 ills. (11 col.). 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781780763088 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 158628. Publisher's description: Contemporary urban regeneration seeks to encourage diverse, creative new neighborhoods that are rich in economic potential. Yet the end result frequently displaces precisely those qualities, activities and communities it claims to engender. Are people best served by a preoccupation with regeneration as economic growth? In Remaking London Ben Campkin provides a lucid and wide-ranging critique of contemporary regeneration. Focusing on present-day regeneration areas in London that are key to the capital's modern identity, including the site of the 2012 Olympics, the result is both a compelling account of contested sites within the capital's recent history and a powerful critique of modern methods of urban regeneration.
