Summary
  • "This book explores the processes of community, regeneration, relationality and affect in a small Welsh town after the closure of its iron and steel works - an industry at the heart of this community"--Publisher's website
  • "How does an industrial community cope when they are told that closure is inevitable? What if this is only the last in a 200-year-long line of threats, insecurities and closure? How did people weather the storms and how do they face the future now? While attempts to regenerate communities are everywhere, we do not often hear from the people themselves just how they managed to create safe collective spaces or how the fall of the whole house of cards brought with it effects which can be felt by young people who never knew the town when it was an industrial heartland. We hear the story of how men and women tried to cope and still want to retain their community in the face of its destruction. What can they and will they have to pass to the next generation and where will that leave the young people themselves, who have nothing to stay for but are unable to leave? This book examines these crucial questions facing post-industrial societies"--P [4] of cover
