THE NORTH OF ENGLAND
New issue of British Politics Review!
It has become a commonplace that the North of England has been given a bad deal in the post-industrial era that emerged from the early 1980s onwards. In the service-based, international economy that is Britain today, little is left of the manufacturing that dominated the country half a century ago. Along with the loss of jobs in the North, the strong sense of place, class and belonging are on the wane too. There is a frightening path from these structural characteristics to the life chances of young people in particular.
The summer issue of British Politics Review has been composed against a sombre backdrop, but is not directed at the ills of the North. What we aim to put forward is instead a selection of articles on cultural identity, reflecting the North that was as well as the one that emerges today.
Contributors include Steven Powell, Ole T. Mangen, Robert Poole, Arve Hjelseth, Tony May & Jonathan Tyler, Andrew Mycock, Philip Blond, Jon Wheatley, Ben Worthy and Maria Sobolewska .
