Texte du rabat

This new book explores Britain's intensely urban and increasingly global communities as interlocking pieces of a complex jigsaw puzzle, which are deeply unequal. How did our major cities become so divided? How do they respond to housing and neighborhood decay? Jigsaw Cities examines these issues using Birmingham, Britain's second largest city and pioneer of the modern urban order, as the strongest model of the drive to create public solutions to private squalor. The book offers a unique insider perspective on policy making and it records the continuing urban flight that traps the poor and pays the rich to move out.
