Southampton is a medium-sized city in southern England, perhaps best known in the past for being a major passenger
shipping port. However, early in the twenty-first century the city is remarkably diversified, with important developments in
manufacturing as well as both producer and consumer services. These developments are the outcome of a complex mixture
of global, national and local factors. The major challenge in such a relatively prosperous city-region is how to deal with
the needs of various economically marginalised groups.
