Urban and Regional Planning Series, Volume 26: British Cities: An Analysis of Urban Change provides an overview of urban change in Britain. The title focuses on the demographic and economic aspects of the British urban system. The text first covers the British urban systems, and then proceeds to tackling population and employment in British cities. Next, the selection deals with the concerns on migration and urban change, such as the migration pattern and the characteristics of migrants. The text also talks about issues in work travel. The last part discusses the British urban systems policy.

The book will be of great interest to urban planners, local government officials, economists, and sociologists.
