The dual city and the Hughes plan: a review of Keating's "The City That Refused To Die" and the Scottish Enterprise White Paper

Jim Stevens, Brian Ashcroft (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The view that Glasgow has become or is diverging towards 'a dual city' merits serious attention. It is increasingly evident that the economic and thus social opportunities presented by the 'Enterprise Culture' continue to bypass a significant proportion of the populations of both Glasgow and Strathclyde. In addition, the plethora of remedial initiatives undertaken by the public sector appears unable to advance the prospects of the residents of either the older urban communities or the relatively new peripheral estates. Such themes are comprehensively explored in a recent book by Dr. Michael Keating entitled The City that Refused to Die, Glasgow: The politics of urban regeneration. This essay will seek to review this publication, examine the implications of 'dualism' and set out the policy prescriptions which arise from acceptance of this conclusion with particular reference to the recent White Paper Scottish Enterprise.
