Overview

Series Editors R.J. Johnston and P.L. Knox World Cities Series Glasgow The Socio-spatial Development of the City Michael Pacione University of Strathclyde, UK Glasgow employs a historical—geographical approach to illuminate the interaction between the multifarious social and spatial forces which have conditioned the processes and patterns of urban growth and change over time in Scotland's principal city. The book is organised into two complementary parts. In the first part, a chronological approach is employed to examine the main agents, processes and patterns underlying the development of the city from its pre-urban origins until the close of the nineteenth century. In the second part, the major issues relating to the socio-spatial development of Glasgow in the twentieth century are the subject of systematic examination. In contrast to previous books about the city that have focused on particular aspects of Glasgow's life and times, this book uses the geographical approach to synthesise relevant information from a plethora of sources to illuminate the changing geography of the city in a multi-perspective format. The primary objective of this book is to assist those who are interested to understand the geography of Scotland's principal city, and is an ideal book for students and researchers of urban studies, geography, social science and Scottish studies. It provides a fascinating insight into the structure of a vibrant, dynamic and often misunderstood city.
