"A Tale of Two Cities" is a study of two post-Fordist cities in the North of England and of the texture of every-day life within them. It explores the hopes and fears and the present pre-occupations of young professionals, the unemployed, young people, the elderly, ethnic minorities and gays and lesbians in Manchester and Sheffield. Throughout, the book draws on an international range of theory from Raymond Williams to John Logan and Harvey Molotch in order to understand the trajectories of local development in these two superficially similar but actually very distinct cities.
