Demonstrating how cities in the United Kingdom appear to be following the American patterns of urban policy, even as far as the language used, this book compares urban policy and programs in both countries. The authors show that the parallels between these two approaches to urban policy rest
on the market-oriented, small government and political foundations of both countries, but that these political similarities obscure significant differences that will make transatlantic urban policy and program transfer more difficult.
