Providing a rare disciplinary crossover between urban studies, criminology and community studies, "Securing an Urban Renaissance" will be essential reading for academics and students in criminology, social policy and human geography concerned with the future of British cities and the political debates shaping the regulation of conduct, crime and disorder in these spaces. The book provides focused discussions and engagement with these issues from a range of scholars who examine policy connections that can be traced between social, urban, and crime policy and the wider processes of regeneration in British towns and cities. This book documents and assesses the core of New Labour's approach to the revitalization of cities - that is, the revival of citizenship, democratic renewal, and the participation of communities to spearhead urban change. In doing so, the book explores the meaning and relevance of "community" as a focus for urban renaissance.
