About the Authors
  • No area of law and policy is more central to our well-being than housing, yet research on the topic is too often produced in disciplinary or methodological silos that fail to connect to policy on the ground. This pathbreaking book, which features leading scholars from a range of academic fields, cuts across disciplines to forge new connections in the discourse. In accessible prose filled with cutting-edge ideas, these scholars address topics ranging from the recent financial crisis to discrimination and gentrification and show how housing law and policy impacts household wealth, financial markets, urban landscapes, and local communities. Together, they harness evidence and theory to capture the 'state of play' in housing, generating insights that will be relevant to academics and policymakers alike. This title is also available as Open Access.

    • Emphasizes housing's dual role as an instrument of wealth-building and as a mechanism for community building
    • Represents a wide range of methodological and disciplinary perspectives, while still remaining succinct and accessible
    • Brings together, in a single volume, the newest work of top experts in the field working on housing issues
    • This book is also available as Open Access
