Meadowell: the biography of an 'estate with problems'
This is an account of the Meadowell estate in North Shields. Although not an account of the recent riots, the book will inform debate on fundamental causes of civil disorder, especially by young people in 'problem estates'. The authors attempt to answer three questions - what influences formed the character of Meadowell? What shapes contemporary life on the estate and how is it different from life outside? How do these influences affect the delivery of policy onto Meadowell?
