Transforming the image of the city book
The previous chapters explored some of the strategies that have commonly been employed since the early 1980s in the UK, mainland Europe and North America to regenerate the landscapes and economies of towns and cities. In this chapter the focus shifts to consider the transformation of the image of the city and the negative images that have become associated with many cities following the de-industrialisation of their economies, and which have proved a hurdle to their successful regeneration.
