Taking a policy analysis approach to housing and drawing from the burgeoning comparative literature, this textbook provides a systematic re-evaluation of the nature of British housing that challenges the orthodox "home-owning society" view whereby Britain is seen as marking a norm. Building up from basic concepts in policy analysis, the book reinterprets the UK housing system in a manner which is sensitive to the specific historical and cultural origins and development of British policy and society. As such, the text offers both an important and cutting-edge evaluation of British housing and a case study in applied social policy analysis.
