This chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about social change in East London, England, from the 1970s to the 2000s. This book examines the effects that class, ethnicity, and aspiration have had on spatial and social mobility in this area, which was, until relatively recently, a bastion of the white working class. It provides a historical background of East London's development in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and discusses the four crucial dimensions of change: social class, ethnicity, housing, and education.

Keywords:   social change, East London, England, social class, ethnicity, aspiration, social mobility, education
