Current themes in housing are explored in this collection of papers from the Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference in 1997. The gamut of issues surrounding participation, such as tenant participation or decision-making participation, together with the forces leading to exclusion - such as in relation to ethnic minorities - are examined. The book should prove relevant to those in the housing movement together with those working in related disciplines.
