The monograph evaluates the ways in which British urban policy makers are attempting to get involved in the development of advanced telecommunications in their cities. It reports the results of a questionnaire survey of 93 municipal authorities and detailed case studies of Edinburgh, Manchester and Sheffield. The urban policies are seen as a new type of planning oriented towards creating the 'information city', through maximising the growth and in-migration of information-intensive activities - the key determinants of urban economic health in the present 'post-industrial era'.
