Unemployment, social deprivation, poverty, political instability, severe cuts in welfare state budgets, and a widespread feeling of despair have eroded much of the social foundations of Southern European cities. In this book, contributors from Spain, Greece, Portugal, and Italy provide insight into the complex interface among different aspects of this crisis. They show these troubles are not entirely due to budgetary problems but are the result of the conditions of a changing nation-state, cultural diversity, the challenges of urban planning, and a globalized economy

Buchbeschreibung Transcript Verlag Aug 2015, 2015. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - The ongoing crisis in Europe has dramatic impact on the life in many Southern European cities: Unemployment, social deprivation, poverty, political instability, severe cuts in the welfare state budgets and a wide spread feeling of despair have eroded much of the social foundation of the cities.In this book, contributors from Spain, Greece, Portugal and Italy provide an insight into the complex interference between the different aspects of the crisis. They show that the recent urban crisis is not purely a result of the budgetary problems of the nation state ('austerity urbanism') but needs to be seen as multiple contestations. The Crisis of the City is therefore understood as a result of a changing nation state, cultural diversity, challenged urban planning and politics and a globalized economy. 264 pp. Englisch.
