The Sage Handbook of Housing Studies free pdf This Handbook elucidates and critically appraises the key issues within housing studies from a multi-disciplinary framework. It looks at ideas from a retrospective approach, but also analyses the future directions of research and theory in the area demonstrating how the study of housing can contribute to wider debates in the social sciences. The book comes with a comprehensive introductory chapter and individual chapter introductions. It is divided into four parts: Markets: examines the perception of housing markets, how they function in different contexts, and the importance of housing behaviour and neighbourhoods Approaches: examines 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 in 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, with an international set of contributors and contributions, the book is a stimulating wide-ranging read that will be a useful source and reference for academics and researchers in geography, urban studies, sociology, social policy, economics and politics.
