Description - The Crisis of London by Dr. Andy Thornley
London is in a mess, it is an increasingly divided city with conditions for the poor worsening all the time. The Crisis of London provides a comprehensive analysis of what has gone wrong, exploring policy directions that could make the city a more humane and livable place. Andy Thornley focuses on a number of issues affecting the citizens of London, from homelessness, unemployment and poverty, racial and sexual violence to frustrating transport facilities and the general bad quality of the environment. He also examines the increasing demands on business as London faces competition from other European cities. Drawing upon the case studies of Docklands and King's Cross The Crisis of London argues that stronger public intervention and government action is necessary if London is to match developments in other European cities. Such action also needs to be democratic and based upon full community action.
