Industry Reviews

"Written by two of Australia's leading housing researchers . . . this book makes an outstanding contribution to a neglected aspect of the Australian housing system: housing wealth. This is an excellent addition to the Australian housing literature. The book is well written and logically structured, which ensures that the information provided is disseminated with ease." --"Australasian Journal of Regional Studies"
