Out Of Print ... This book about Wales in the early 1990s has a two fold objective. Firstly, to provide an outline of the pertinent changes which are occurring in Wales and are fundamentally changing both the social geography of parts of the countiy and the business environment which this presents. The second objective concerns the assessment of the policies of government at all levels which both cause some of the changes affecting Wales, or otherwise seek to counter, channel or enhance them. Within this dual context of change and policy, this book seeks to raise issues and to inform, to enable a distinctively Welsh debate on the changes affecting Wales. Dr Richard Prentice is a Senior Lecturer at Queen Margaret College in Edinburgh. He has undertaken extensive research into issues of British, and particularly Welsh, policy over the past fifteen years, princially in housing, transport, tourism and social planning. From 1978 to 1993 Dr Pren was a Lecturer at University College of Swansea, firstly in the College's Department of Social Policy, and subsequently in its Department of Geography. In this capacity from 1980 to 1990 he chaired the Board of Planning Studies at the College. Prior to working in Wales Dr Prentice studied at the Universities of Liverpool and Reading, and worked in both Durham University Business School and local government in London. Dr Prentice has published extensively in academic journals in applied geography and social policies; he is also the author of 'Tourism and Heritage Attractions' (Routledge 1993), co-author of 'Social Trends in the Soviet Union' from 1950 (Macmillan 1987), and co-editor of 'Heritage Sites; Strategies for Marketing and Development' (Avebury 1989).
