Published in 1998, current themes in housing are explored in this collection of papers. The gamut of issues surrounding participation, such as tenant participation or decision-making participation, together with the forces leading to exclusion, such as in relation to ethnic minorities, are examined. The book will be relevant to all those in the housing movement together with those working in related disciplines.


’…a useful addition to the housing policy and practice literature…will provide many with fresh insights and analyses.’ Local Government Studies
