dc.description.abstractThis book brings together a unique group of scholars to explore the politics of local economic development in Northern England. Socio-economic conditions in the North –and its future prospects – have become central to national debates in the UK around economic change following the 2008 financial crisis, associated with efforts to rebalance the economy away from London and the South East, and the finance sector. The book focuses in particular upon the coalition and Conservative governmentsNorthern Powerhouse agenda, and associated efforts to devolve power to local authorities across England, which promise to bring both greater prosperity and autonomy to the deindustrialised North. Several chapters critically interrogate these initiatives, and their ambitions, by placing them in wider historical, geographical, institutional and ideological contexts; as such, the book seeks to locate Northern England within a broader understanding of the political dimension of economic development. The books conclusion outlines a series of ideas for enhancing the Norths developmental prospects.en
