Abstract [en]

Cross-disciplinary and critical in its approach, The SAGE Handbook of Housing Studiesis an elucidating look at the key issues within the field.

The Handbook covers the study of housing retrospectively, but also analyses the future directions of research and theory, demonstrating how it can contribute to wider debates in the social sciences. A comprehensive introductory chapter is followed by four parts offering complete coverage of the area:

Markets examines the perception of housing markets, how they function in different contexts, and the importance of housing behaviour and neighbourhoods

Approaches looks at how other disciplines - economics, geography, and sociology - have informed the direction of housing studies

Context traces the interactions between housing studies and other aspects of society, providing context to debate housing through issues of space, social, welfare and the environment.

Policy is a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive take on the major policy issues and the causes and possible solutions of housing problems such as regeneration and homelessness.

Edited by leading names in the field and including international contributions, the book is a stimulating, wide-ranging read that will be an invaluable resource for academics and researchers in geography, urban studies, sociology, social policy, economics and politics.
