Neoliberal Urban Policy and the Transformation of the City free pdf This collection focuses on the character and impacts of 'actually-existing' neoliberalism in Ireland, taking Dublin as a central case study. It explores the way in which Irish neoliberalism brought about a major transformation in the city and how the 'Celtic Tiger' economy underwent a dramatic change in fortunes, requiring a bail-out from the EU, ECB and IMF in late 2010. The study comprises four parts, setting the contextual background, examining the property-development boom and its legacy, reviewing the impacts of neoliberal urban policy in reshaping the city and, finally, noting aspects of public resistance to the operation of neoliberal urban policy, highlighting salient points to be drawn from the continuing Irish experience of neoliberalism and austerity. Drawing together a wide range of research, this volume is an essential read for undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in geography, sociology, urban planning and political science.
