Abstract [en]

OverviewAdequate housing is universally recognized as the basis for productive social engagement, but constitutes adequate housing? This encyclopedia, edited by distinguished researcher and teacher Susan J. Smith, uses studies in economics and finance, psychology, social policy, sociology, anthropology, geography, architecture, law, and other disciplines to create an international portrait of a house and, ultimately, a home. Summarizing the diverse approaches are 34 overview articles that help readers navigate more complex materials, and beneath them are cross-references and citations that depict their interrelationships. Presenting comprehensive and balanced views of qualitative and quantitative approaches to housing, this multidisciplinary approach reveals the many facets of our efforts to claim some place as our own.
