Localities, Class and Gender (Research in Planning and Design, 13)

L. Murgatroyd, Sylvia Walby

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The 10 papers and introduction are by members of the Lancaster (University) Regionalism Group and explore aspects of how class and gender relations intersect within different local areas. The book contains general analyses of the changing nature of contemporary economy and society, of its 'deindustrialisation', of the growth of 'self-servicing', of rising unemployment, and of the labour force. There are also detailed examinations of local areas in the north of the UK. A major theme is how these processes, which affect different localities in different ways, are themselves affected by various planning and policy instruments, especially regional policy and physical planning controls. Papers are abstracted separately in Parts C, D, or F. -from Authors deindustrialisation unemployment UK policy instruments planning controls
