Urban regeneration in a changing economy: an international perspective

Front Cover
This book provides a cross-national analysis of the current issues and "best practices" employed in the advanced industrial countries to restructure and diversify local urban economies. Examining policy issues in systematic terms, the authors take a compelling look at major issues of urban regeneration strategy such as the integration of the urban sectoral policies, high technology (especially new information technologies), small business creation and expansion, and advanced producer services. The second part provides case-study evaluations of some of these policies at work in selected cities in Germany, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United States. This study will be particularly valuable for advance level courses in urban science, sociology, business management, and public policy.
