Drawing on socio-legal, economic and broader housing research, this work is a critique of the development of both housing law and housing policy. In the three sections of the book the author discusses the regulatory crisis affecting each housing tenure, access to housing, and finally individual housing rights in the context of a shift towards individual responsibility.
