Managing the City by John Diamond

Taking a problem based approach to regeneration management, this exciting new book, authored by renowned academics and practitioners, examines how issues of ethics, equality, sustainability, local governance, civic renewal and learning are addressed within the areas of social and economic development and transformation.

The issues covered here have significant implications for the ways in which regeneration initiatives are put together (in their design, development and delivery), as well as for the skills and learning needs of practitioners and the ways in which initiatives are then managed and led. This informative book provides the tools and techniques, using a mixture of rigorous academic theory and practical insights, to enable any reader to gain insight into this important subject.

Drawing upon a breadth of experience both in practice and in academia, the contributors present the gaps and challenges within regeneration management, and the editors provide a framework within which the practical difficulties facing those engaged in the process of regeneration can be managed. Engaging and comprehensive, this book is an invaluable resource for all those involved in regeneration.
