In the late 1980s, a great deal of Conservative legislation was implemented in order to restructure post-war housing policy. The contributors to this study, both academics and leading practitioners in the field, are all experts in varying aspects of the subject. They discuss whether local authorities have really been disabled by central government, whether housing associations can fulfill their new role as leading providers of social rental housing, what type of social and economic consequences the growth in home ownership will have, and whether the private rental sector can be revived.
The book provides critiques of government policies from the New Right, from a race and gender perspective, and from the point of view of council tenants. "Housing Policy in the 1990s" is essential reading for policy analysts, students and lecturers of social policy and housing courses, as well as those with an interest in urban studies and economics.
