This book aims to give a clear overview of the vagaries of urban policy in Britain. The author has the view that the urban question is not simply a matter of evaluating current policy approaches to the city and thinking about alternatives. The issues presuppose a view both on whether the city is worth "saving" and what future rationale cities might have in a post-industrial world. The author discusses the practicalities of policies wholly drawn from English examples and especially in the context of Greater Manchester where Robson was Chairman of the Manchester Council for Voluntary Services. He outlines alternative urban futures and suggests the direction in which policy should move to create the conditions for a revived future for large cities in Britain.
