about this item

Written for undergraduate and post-graduate students in housing, planning, and social policy, this book provides an overview of UK housing policy and the social and economic factors that affect policy. The book begins with an overview of approaches for understanding housing policy, such as laissez-faire economics, social reformism, Marxist political economy, behavioral approaches, and social constructionism; a conclusion chapter returns to these approaches to examine reform from each approach. Other chapters are devoted to affordable housing, homelessness, neighborhood deprivation, housing and social justice, and agencies that govern housing in the UK. The text includes chapter overviews, key points, discussion questions, further reading, and recommended web sites briefly described. This third edition reflects recent legislation and government policies such as austerity policies, the coalition government’s housing policies, the 2015 Conservative government’s policies, and Brexit.
