Housing and Social Policy : Contemporary Themes and Critical Perspectives Paperback / softback
Edited by Peter (University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, UK) Somerville, Nigel (University of Salford, UK) Sprigings
Part of the Housing and Society Series series
This topical book transforms the analysis of housing problems into a lively, interesting and contentious subject of social scientific study, addressing themes of residential experience, inclusion/empowerment, sustainability and professionalism/managerialism, which lie at the heart of the housing and social policy debate.
Each chapter considers a specific social category - such as class, gender, or disability - and evaluates the experience and understanding of housing and social policy under this category.
With innovative approaches to conceptualising housing and a clear, defined structure, Housing and Social Policy encourages students and practitioners in both arenas to think reflexively about housing as a central instrument of social policy and social experience.
