British Urban Policy
An Evaluation of the Urban Development Corporations

Second Edition

This updated edition of British Urban Policy provides a comprehensive account of the policies, programmes, and effects of one of the most controversial urban policy programmes ever brought to bear upon British cities. The authors place the policies and practices of the urban development corporations (UDCs) in the wider sociopolitical context of evolving urban policy; present case studies of eight UDCs; and explore the legacies of the UDCs and the evolving framework for urban policy into the millennium.
