Summary First published in 1995, this volume explores the effects of social policy on cities during Conservative Party rule over the 1980s and 1990s. It identifies the place where the effects of social policies are most strikingly felt due to the concentration of populations in cities. Delving into issues including business elites, market forces, regenerating cities and poverty, this volume's contributors make clear that there can be no 'quick fix' for Britain's complex urban problems
