Abstract
This volume critically examines the state of British town centres analyzing the threats to their existence, the interests shaping their destiny and the prospects for their regeneration. The text begins by charting the evolution of town centres, asking whether they still matter. The appearance of British towns is shown to have been transformed by retail, transport, commercial and cultural trends. The final and conclusive part of the text looks at who dominates the relationship between producers and users of towns, and the impact of public policy. The book ends by presenting a survival strategy for the High Street in contemporary Britiain.
