This volume considers one of the most extraordinary communities in the United Kingdom: the Eldonians from Liverpool. In 1978, facing demolition of their neighborhood and the destruction of their community and economy, they created an alternative strategy for regeneration—embarking on the completion of Eldonian Village, a sustainable community that has won major awards over the past twenty-five years, including the prestigious World Habitat Award. Telling the story of the Eldonians through their own voices, The Rebirth of Liverpool provides key lessons for other communities, professionals, social service agencies, and policy makers who might learn from this remarkable example.
