Book review: Olympic Cities

My review of Poynter & MacRury’s edited collection ‘Olympic Cities: 2012 and the Remaking of London’  has just been published in this month’s edition of New Start Magazine, a publication for the regeneration sector.

“Like all pre-games publications, this text suffers from the problem of grappling with an event that is yet to happen, in a policy environment subject to radical change.  However, by bringing together a diversity of perspectives on the relationship between hosting the games and urban development in one volume, it forms an excellent resource for anyone trying to understand how and why we got to where we are today in East London and the regeneration potential of a successful Games in 2012.”
