Introduction to Housing
With individual chapters written by housing experts who have specialization within the discipline, this text is designed to be a collection of chapters/readings about various aspects of housing--an authorship approach that provides more credibility for each individual chapter than if one author had written the whole book. It also gives the book content that goes beyond rudimentary basics, and provides commentary on physical, social, psychological, economic, and policy issues.
