that the existence of slums like the Gorbals often led outsiders to view Glasgow in a negative light (Damer 1990 ). But the city has reinvented itself as a post-industrial city and cultural destination with some success (Tucker 2008 ), becoming a venue for the National Garden Festival and European Capital of Culture in 1990 (Garcia 2004 ; Mooney 2004 ). And, while it was possible for researchers such as Patrick ( 1973 ) to seek to analyse Glasgow’s gang culture in the 1970s, urban redevelopment and population dispersal and overspill have broken up many of the

of the capitalist world-system as involving a neat division among core, semi-peripheral, and peripheral zones. For a critique of the latter in the context of post-1980s patterns of geoeconomic restructuring, state rescaling, and urban redevelopment, see Brenner ( 1999 ). 7 Many intellectual

medieval streets. Writing on London in 1872, Taine expressed the common idea that ‘certainly Napoleon III demolished and rebuilt Paris only because he had lived in London …’. 8 While the political absolutism of the urban redevelopment strategy was clearly at odds with English ways of shaping the cityscape, specific elements of the new Paris made direct reference to admired features of London. Although attempts to create Parisian docks on a scale at all comparable with London’s were predictably unsuccessful they were

forming the committee responsible for the work …37 Burns set out the principles of public relations in so far as they were related to urban redevelopment in the 1960s. It involved the press, building relations with potential client groups, such as prospective council house tenants, providing a plan for consultation, photographs and importantly models of the future development: Throughout all the proceedings, however, if the press are treated as friends in the business of improving the town, rather than enemies of truth or local government and therefore to be avoided at

Charlotte Wildman has recently demonstrated the dynamism and optimism of urban redevelopment programmes from the end of the First World War onwards, which did not suggest a dramatic loss of confidence. 4 Nevertheless, it remains true that, over time, Manchester lost its nineteenth-century pre-eminence. By 1976, A. J. P. Taylor could write that ‘Manchester has become an agreeable provincial town. It is no

For Simon Gunn and Robert Morris, 1914 marked a turning point in the decline of civic power, as by the 1920s and 1930s towns were ‘abandoned’ by the elites who were responsible for the powerful municipal culture of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. 17 However, as Charlotte Wildman has demonstrated in her study of urban redevelopment in interwar Manchester and Liverpool, where local elites continued to drive the redevelopment of the cities, cultures of civic pride reflected the specific context of the

Blake’s ‘DUST’ flags imply that in the transformation of ‘STUD’ to ‘DUST’ there have been losses and gains, mutually informing.

, gentrification or urban redevelopment. Conversely, economic decline, or state disinvestment in particular areas, may create conditions of unemployment, factory closures or inner-city decline. Hence, the uneven articulation of economic and state power – at the macrolevel – geographically differentiates the grievance structures of social movements (Nicholls, 2007). State power is articulated unevenly across space which presents different sets of political opportunities for actors in different locations (Nicholls, 2007). Both between states and within them, geographical
