5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and up to date 21 Nov 2010
By Sarey
Of all the books available on the subject of housing policy in the UK this is by far the most up-to-date one. It is really comprehensive and gives an accurate and critical overview of the current position of housing in the UK, and what has influenced this. It also gives a thorough history of UK housing policy and the drivers behind its development. It's very readable and is academic without using too many 'big' words. The use of visuals, graphs and tables provide good illustrations to the text. I used it for a lot of reference in a number of assignments and found it to be a reliable source. Ideal for students of social sciences, policy, planning or even housing, but great for the professional too!
