Housing in the United Kingdom: Whose Crisis? (1st ed. 2019)
Brian Lund (Author)
In this book, Brian Lund builds on contemporary housing crisis narratives, which tend to focus on the growth of a younger 'generation rent,' to include the differential effects of class, age, gender, ethnicity and place, across the United Kingdom. Current differences reflect long-established cleavages in UK society, and help to explain why housing crises persist. Placing the UK crises in their global contexts, Lund provides a critical examination of proposed solutions according to their impacts on different pathways through the housing system. As the first detailed analysis of the multifaceted origins, impact and potential solutions of the housing crisis, this book will be of vital interest to policy practitioners, professionals and academics across a wide range of areas, including housing studies, urban studies, geography, social policy, sociology, planning and politics. 5 Illustrations, black and white; XVI, 374 p. 5 illus.
