The authors, who form the Lancaster Regionalism Group, bring new research to bear on the ways in which places have been transformed through the changes taking place within them - shifts in the nature and quantity of paid and unpaid work, in social and political mobilization, in cultural and aesthetic experience and in the built environment. At the local level, the book draws on the authors' research on change in the city of Lancaster from its past as a place of manufacturing industry, through its current role as a centre of public services, and with increasing trends towards an alternative role in private services. At the general level the book relates the local detail to the broader social scientific analysis of social and economic change. How successfully do concepts of "restructuring" explain the relation between global and local change?.
