Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

MOORE N. ;

Abstract

The redevelopment of Dublin's docklands over the past twenty years has greatly changed the social structure and physical fabric of a large part of the city. After stressing parallels with many ports in the world, including Sydney and New York, this book examines how global influences and local processes have transformed this once marginal part of Dublin into an economically successful and vibrant urban quarter. It analyses political and economic processes at work and highlights some of the difficulties encountered in relation to redevelopment, rehabilitation and regeneration of specific sites and localities. Attention is drawn to the complex interaction of politics, policies and the role of key individuals in re-shaping this urban district. - (HC)
