This book examines the economic and social challenges of major European cities, and the potential economic winners and losers during the 1990s. It identifies the responses cities have made to those challenges, locates them in their wider economic and spatial contexts, and provides the reader with a clear picture of the changing urban economic power balance of Europe.
Opening with a powerful discussion of the dynamics of economic change in Europe, European cities identifies the range of responses that cities have adopted to the processes of economic restructuring and identifies the challenges that they have faced during the past decade. The cities covered in detail are: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Birmingham, Brussels, Dublin, Lyon, Montpellier, Milan, Frankfurt and Seville. The book concludes by highlighting a series of problems that decision makers will have to respond to in the 1990s.
It will be of interest to postgraduate students, researchers and lecturers, in urban studies, urban geography and planning.
