    Book details


The Dublin Docklands, which are currently affected by fundamental transformation processes, are explored in this ethnographic contribution to the study of relations between port and city. It investigates their images and forms of representation, changing demographics, and urban design. The central actors in the study are a number of dockland communities, who, until the 1960s, were almost entirely dependent on port economies. Even today, these communities identify strongly with their port-related history and culture. This book explores how the transformation affects their culture, social organization, and every day practices particularly strategies that are used to preserve old-established traditions and notions of urban space.'
