Housing America : Issues and Debates, Paperback / softback Book

Housing America : Issues and Debates Paperback / softback

Part of the The Metropolis and Modern Life series


In an effort to explain why housing remains among the United States' most enduring social problems, Housing America explores five of the U.S.'s most fundamental, recurrent issues in housing its population: affordability of housing, homelessness, segregation and discrimination in the housing market, homeownership and home financing, and planning.

It describes these issues in detail, why they should be considered problems, the history and fundamental social debates surrounding them, and the past, current, and possible policy solutions to address them.

While this book focuses on the major problems we face as a society in housing our population, it is also about the choices we make about what is valued in our society in our attempts to solve them.

Housing America is appropriate for courses in urban studies, urban planning, and housing policy.
