London, one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world, has particular problems, trends and potentials which make its investigation an essential component of urban studies. The contributors examine the economic, social and political dimensions of its existence. The text analyzes aspects of London which have hitherto received little attention, such as gender divisions of labour and the impact of London's boroughs on life in the capital, and examines the city in its regional, national and international context.
