This is the first comparative study of the effects of global economic restructuring on the populations of major cities of North America, Europe, Australia and South Africa. The book offers a detailed examination of thirteen metropolises with each chapter following the same format of providing both local details and general theoretical interpretations. The chapters show the "post-industrial restructuring" profile and the economic changes that relate to national and international economies. They indicate the demographic, social and economic changes over the past 30 years and look at the impacts of local and national policies to mitigate the worst effects of the economic developments. The book identifies the changing options for individuals and households under the specific conditions prevalent in each country. It also looks at the future of the social ecology of the cities and the nature of inter-group social relations, in the competition for jobs, housing, access to government services and educational chances. It provides an up-to-date view of the situation that minority populations face in the world's economic nodes, such as London, Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Zurich, with detailed commentaries by local experts, both geographers and sociologists.

Maritime archaeology deals with shipwrecks and is carried out by divers rather than diggers. It embraces maritime history and analyses changes in shipbuilding, navigation and seamanship and offers fresh perspectives on the cultures and societies that produced the ships and sailors. Drawing on detailed past and recent case studies, Richard A. Gould provides an up-to-date review of the field that includes dramatic new findings arising from improved undersea technologies. This second edition of Archaeology and the Social History of Ships has been updated throughout to reflect new findings and new interpretations of old sites. The new edition explores advances in undersea technology in archaeology, especially remotely operated vehicles. The book reviews many of the major recent shipwreck findings, including the Vasa in Stockholm, the Viking wrecks at Roskilde Fjord and the Titanic.

This volume brings together an interdisciplinary team of leading scholars to discuss frameworks of value in relation to the preservation of historic environments. Starting from the premise that heritage values are culturally and historically constructed, the book examines the effects of pluralist frameworks of value on how preservation is conceived. It questions the social and economic consequences of constructions of value and how to balance a responsive, democratic conception of heritage with the pressure to deliver on social and economic objectives. It also describes the practicalities of managing the uncertainty and fluidity of the widely varying conceptions of heritage.

For decades the cities of the developed world were seen as problem-beset relics from times of low mobility and slow communications. But now, their potential to sustain creativity, culture and innovation is perceived as crucial to success in a much more competitive global ecomony. The vital requirement to secure and sustain this success is argued to be the achievement of social cohesion. Working Capital provides a rigorous but accessible analysis of these key issues taking London as its test case. The book provides the first substantial analysis of key economic, social and structural issues that the new London administration needs to deal with. In a wider context, its critical assessment of the bases of the new urbanism and of the global city thesis will raise questions both about the adequacy of urban thinking and about the capacity of new institutions alone to resolve the fundamental problems faced by cities.
