Abstract and Keywords
This article outlines the theoretical approaches to analyzing urban redevelopment in the United States and Western Europe. It examines the policies that have been adopted in more than sixty years of public intervention within the already built environment and evaluates the role played by different social interests in affecting this intervention. The article suggests that programs for urban redevelopment rest within a field of forces which connects local conditions with global transformations, and considers the issue of slum clearance.
