Liverpool Beyond the Brink is a fascinating commentary on the economic decline that
caused the physical, social and political fragmentation of the imperial city during the
1970s and the efforts since then to revive and reconnect it. It charts Liverpool's fall in
the 1980s, its gradual normalisation in the 1990s, its staggering achievements and, as
a European city in the first part of this century, its efforts to be ambitious in an age of
austerity. This thought-provoking work asks: how far has Liverpool come and where
does it now stand in comparison with thirty years ago and alongside other cities in the
UK? What were the most important forces driving change? Who helped the most and
who helped the least? Who and where gained the most and who and where gained
the least? Finally, the author asks what is next for Liverpool: what are the current
challenges for the city? Liverpool Beyond the Brink identifies the key economic, social
and political challenges facing the city today to ensure there is increased productivity,
future development is high quality and that the benefits of the city's renaissance are
experienced by all the people in Liverpool in all parts of the city. [Cover image: Liverpool Waterfront 2017 (c) McCoy Wynne (mccoywynne.co.uk)]
