On 1 April 1965, a new system of city government was introduced to London, resulting in the birth of 32 boroughs. In London’s Boroughs at 50, Tony Travers traces the emergence and development of each of these individual and diverse boroughs that have played a key role in revolutionising the city and the lives of its inhabitants over the past fifty years. Jane Wills highly recommends this book, which raises important questions about the multi-scalar governance of London.
