A study of two cities that were originating centers of the English industrial revolution, exploring the attitudes of professionals, the unemployed, young people, the elderly, ethnic minorities, gays, and street people in Manchester and Sheffield in the 1990s. Addresses urban crime, the demonization of racialized enclaves, women's adaptive strategies, and urban redevelopment as a local utopia of the new professional classes. Concludes with an extended essay on the future of post-Fordist cities in England and elsewhere. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
