About this product
- DescriptionHousing has become a hot topic. The media is filled with stories of individual housing hardship and of major property-related financial crises: of crippling personal debts, rundown social housing, homelessness, mass demolitions, spiralling prices, unaffordability and the 'credit crunch'. This book links all these together through a radical analysis that puts housing at the heart of critical ecomic and political debate. The authors show that these problems arise from the fact that houses are longer seen primarily as homes for living in, but rather as a source of profit. Case studies from the UK, the US and other western countries are set into a theoretical and historical overview of how housing has changed over several decades. The book also examines campaigns for better housing and explores possibilities for a different approach to this most fundamental of human needs.
