Originally published in 1987, Regenerating the Inner City looks at the changes to Glasgow’s East End and how industrial closures and slum clearance projects have caused people to leave. This is reflected across the western world, and causes severe blows to cities where these industries are located. The book draws on Glasgow’s Eastern Area Renewal Scheme, the first big urban renewal project in Britain. The contributors to the volume come from a range of disciplines and form practical conclusions for policy-makers, and community activists. The book uses door-to-door surveys in Glasgow’s east end, and interviews with community groups to gain an authentic understanding of the issue.
