The result of a conference organized to address problems raised by the housing crisis of the 1980s, this volume brings together academic and professional housing experts representing a variety of disciplines and political perspectives. Their papers fall into three major groups. Those in the first group are concerned with establishing criteria for evaluating the nation's housing stock and assessing progress toward reaching national housing goals. A second set addresses the issue of specialism and the problems of groups with special housing needs, while the final section examines the range of policies aimed at meeting the housing needs of those for whom the market fails to offer acceptable options. The result is a major contribution to the ongoing dialogue regarding the needs of those for whom adequate housing is not currently available.
