Contemporary urban regeneration seeks to encourage diverse, creative new neighbourhoods that are rich in economic potential. Yet the end result frequently displaces precisely those qualities, activities and communities it claims to engender. Are people best served by a preoccupation with regeneration as economic growth? In The Regeneration Game Ben Campkin provides a lucid and wide-ranging critique of contemporary regeneration. Focusing on present-day regeneration areas in London that are key to the capitalas modern identity, including the site of the 2012 Olympics, the result is both a compelling account of contested sites within the capitalas recent history and a powerful critique of modern methods of urban regeneration.a#39;Tickled pink!a#39;, The Trumpet, advertising supplement, London, August 1990. ...
