Illustrated by an interdisciplinary study of a typical 'postmodern city' in the north of England – Leeds – this volume examines how such post-industrial cities have reinvented themselves, commercially, politically and spatially over the past two decades, with a particular focus on sport and leisure. Addressing issues such as cultural policy, leisure patterns, sports tourism and heritage, sex and sexuality, music and popular culture, it explores the different dimensions of this process in relation to the changing configurations of class, gender and ethnicity in the postmodern, postindustrial city.
