Phoenix cities : the fall and rise of great industrial cities by Anne Power( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
"How did Europe react? How did the US? How different were their responses? This book looks closely at the recovery trajectories of seven European cities from very different regions of the European Union. Their dramatic decline, intense recovery efforts and progress on the ground reinforce the significance of public underpinning in times of crisis. Innovative enterprises, new-style city leadership, special neighbourhood programmes and skills development are all explored. The US experience, whereby cities were largely left to their own devices, produced a slower, more uncertain recovery trajectory. This book will provide much that is original and promising to all those wanting to understand the ground-level realities of urban change and progress."--Page 4 of cover

Poverty rates vary dramatically across the UK's ethnic groups - an issue of concern both for poverty reduction policies and for social justice.

Drawing on a wealth of research conducted since 1991, and with a particular focus on the most recent evidence, the report: reviews what we know about poverty and ethnicity; provides a detailed and considered insight into the factors contributing to the differing rates of poverty; outlines the policy implications of existing research; and reflects on the limitations to our knowledge and understanding of the issues

Faith as social capital : connecting or dividing? ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
The UK government has identified Faith communities as important sources of 'social capital' in community development and regeneration. But religion is also associated with conflict and division. How far is this faith in 'Faith' justified? And how far should Faith communities comply? This report assesses the debate and the evidence and: summarises the controversies surrounding the idea of 'social capital' and the place of 'Faith' in community policy; assesses the contribution of Faith communities to social capital that extends beyond bonding to build bridges and links with others in civil society; and identifies policy and practice implications for secular and Faith organisations and networks. The research in the report encompasses five major Faith traditions across four English regions. It explores the nature and the quality of social capital stemming from Faith buildings, association; engagement with governance, and participation in the wider public domain. This exploration of Faith communities and social capital is important for all who work to achieve well-connected communities. It will interest policy makers and researchers, those working in community development, regeneration and related fields, national and local Faith leaders and their communities, and all in the voluntary and community sectors. -- Back cover
