    Originally published in 1993, as part of the Ethnoscapes: Current Challenges in the Environmental Social Sciences series, reissued now with a new series introduction, Housing: Design, Research and Education, demonstrated some of the diversity and richness of the research being undertaken in housing at time, which took as its starting point peoples’ notion of home and the way in which a sense of home is captured distilled and expressed through various facets of design, and conversely the urgent need for architects and planners to take seriously the everyday scale and scope of peoples’ home experience. The breadth of subject background and cultural location from which these chapters are drawn provides stimulating reading at the same time as presenting a challenging choice of perspectives.
