Urban Life in Transition examines the relationships between economic, political, and sociological effects of urban life suggesting that political, cultural and social changes in city affairs do not occur as a direct result of economic restructuring. Addressing a gap in the literature which neglects complex issues of urban life and governance, this book treats urban crime, drugs, racism and demographic patterns as topics on their own as well as their impact on local govenment from the mayorality to the neighbourhood level.
