A coherent, livable London is disintegrating. Homelessness, unemployment, poverty, racial and sexual violence, pollution, a deterioration in transport, public spaces and public access to decision-making, the increasing demands on business and development from the new Europe; all these suggest a city in danger of losing both priorities and direction. The Crisis of London analyses how the city has failed and how a new vision is both necessary and possible. If London is to match other European capitals the market alone cannot solve the problems. Government action is needed. And, ultimately, the city must be shaped by its community.Thornley, Andy is the author of 'Crisis of London', published 1992 under ISBN 9780415068864 and ISBN 041506886X.
