G. Jonas and Linda McCarthy INTRODUCTION Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, liberal politicians, public officials, planners, and activists in the United States spoke passionately and earnestly of the country’s growing ‘urban crisis,’ a crisis that was often inflected with discourses of racial segregation, political alienation, and fiscal decline. By the 1980s, talk of the urban crisis was more closely associated with wider economic trends—globalisation, capital fl ight from the city, and the crisis of the American ‘Fordist’ model of mass production (Florida and Jonas 1991).

In the context of local regeneration projects, and in the ways in which regeneration managers seek to negotiate their roles or to lead on the implementation of a particular initiative we can conclude that the specific context 22 John Diamond and relationships tells us something of the ‘thickness’ of the state’s institutions and its authority. As we will see next we want to make the point that it is in the practice of regeneration management and the bringing together of a range of different institutions and agencies that we can see the visible sign of the power and status of the local (and central) state.

Each uses regeneration processes and agencies as ways of understanding the urban experience. We want to cite their work as representing (in different ways) seminal contributions to our collective understanding of how neighbourhoods or communities become sites for public policy implementation or private sector experimentation with the collusion of the state. Their work complements the studies of Fainstein and Fainstein (1982) and Fainstein et al. (1992) where the conceptual model being explored is that of the ‘city’ being in a constant process of change and confl ict as different interest groups seek to assert their authority over the institutions and individuals managing decision-making within the city.
