Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on social change in East London, England, from the 1970s to the 2000s. It highlights the upward and outward mobility by some groups as new groups come in, and suggests that East London represents the future of the social composition of a number of British cities and those elsewhere. The chapter also attempts to interweave the four dimensions of change (social class, ethnicity, housing, and education) into an account of urban change as neoliberalism faces its first serious social and economic crisis.
