These are places, and towns, in which it clearly does make some sense, analytically, to focus on the mobile character of the employed local labour force and, indeed, on the restless, mobile sentiments of many of the local residents as a whole. 6 Lash and Urry do remark, themselves, that: not all local economies are experiencing the same pattern. In Britain, Rochdale is far from being post-industrial and servicedominated. (Lash and Urry 1994:212) A considerable amount of research was undertaken in Britain during the 1980s on the essentially uneven fate and experience of different localities with respect to ‘de-industrialisation’ and the shift to ‘postFordist arrangements of production’.
There is a particular interest, in this body of sociological theory, in the ways in which individuals have recently been dislodged from their familiar or ‘traditional’ patterns of behaviour (their ‘routines’), and also their beliefs and certainties about the world, by the need to adapt to the rapid changes taking place in their economic life or their social and cultural environment. The overall source of this ‘de-traditionalisation’ is the move towards global markets: the local imperative in Britain and in other older industrial societies is the collapse of the local mass manufacturing industry and the communities associated with it.
Our interest in what we are calling the ‘local structure of feeling’ in these two cities does not limit our focus only to the area within the city boundaries, or even to particular definitive sites or symbolic locations in the centres of these two cities, though our fieldwork to some extent focused more on ‘the centre’ and three carefully chosen local areas rather than the city’s larger range of suburbs and inner-city areas. Our interest in local difference also involved curiosity, on our parts, as to the historical processes of production and cultural practice that may make up ‘the local’.
