The SAGE Handbook of Housing Studies

Edited by:

May 2012 | 528 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This Handbook elucidates and critically appraises the key issues within housing studies from a multi-disciplinary framework. It looks at ideas from a retrospective approach, but also analyzes the future directions of research and theory in the area demonstrating how the study of housing can contribute to wider debates in the social sciences. The book comes with a comprehensive introductory chapter and individual chapter introductions. It is divided into four parts: markets; approaches; context; and policy. With an international team of contributors, the Handbook is a stimulating, wide-ranging read that will be a useful source and reference for academics and researchers in geography, urban studies, sociology, social policy, economics, and political science.
