    Originally published between 1961 and 1994, the volumes in this set sit equally comfortably in sociology and geography as well as housing studies. Even though they were published some years ago, their content continues to offer critical engagement with an evolving policy agenda which is even more important in a time of crisis and deeper polarization both nationally and globally as a result of the pandemic.


    • Provide a comprehensive political-economic analysis of the historical origins and 20th Century experience of 19th and 20th Century housing tenure in the UK, France, Germany, the former USSR, Israel, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Puerto Rico and the USA.
    • Discuss landlord-tenant relations and the neglect of particular disadvantaged groups such as the elderly, the single homeless and those in low income groups
    • Examine the balance between rehabilitation and redevelopment and the rise and fall of the high-rise flat
    • Cover issues such as rent, rent controls, subsidies and urban renewal
    • Look at the implications of selling council houses and evaluate the impact of the growth of home ownership in the UK
    • Address the practical and political difficulties of devising measures which meet policy objectives.
