    Urban Studies
    Nice of the publishers of Urban Studies to invite me to subscribe. It's been a week of identifying sources of good writing on urban issues and I relished the prospect of some good academic reading on The Nature of the Neighbourhood, What Makes Gentrification 'Gentrification'?, Edge Urban Geographies: Notes from the Margins of Europe's Capital Cities, to name a few of their current articles. However a sub is £180 ... one hundred and eighty quid.

    So I shall decline; and instead keep on doing my own reading - of the lines of the faces of the people I listen to here, of the changing shapes of the streets and the economies ...

    ... but I do welcome a freebie, which will be very useful: the full report of The William Temple Foundation's first year's research on the project Regenerating Communities, A Theological and Strategic Critique, which carries much from Manchester which will translate well here, thirty miles down the Mersey.
