HOUSING POLITICS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
Power, Planning and ProtesteBook - 2016
With rapid population growth, a long-term dearth in new housing construction, the emergence of 'generation rent' and rising homelessness, the issue of housing in the UK is considered complex, open-ended and intractable. Using insights from public choice theory, the new institutionalism and social constructionism Housing Politics in the United Kingdom locates the contemporary 'housing question' in historically entrenched power relationships involving markets, planning, and territorial electoral politics. Written to complement the 3rd edition of the author's bestselling Understanding housing policy (forthcoming, 2017), this book will be essential reading for students of Housing, Social Policy, Social History, Urban Studies, Planning and Political Science.
