What is a city? How does it come into being? Who are the people involved? How are decisions made and what happens next? Realising the city provides multiple insider perspectives on this northern English city.

Drawing on extensive fieldwork into the city's football clubs, annual civic parade and Gay Village, airport and infrastructure, parks and housing estates, these ethnographic accounts trace the multiple dynamics of a vibrant and rapidly changing post-industrial city.

This book provides essential reading for researchers interested in contemporary urban dynamics.

Its accessible style and material will also interest community activists, city administrators, political analysts and elected officials.

The book is suitable for undergraduate reading lists for courses teaching ethnographic methods and on urban studies courses within sociology, anthropology, geography and the built environment. -- .
