Booknews
Scholars of housing<-->there seems to be such a discipline in Britain<-->King (De Montfort U.) and Oxley (Nottingham Trent U.) engage in a debate between a political theorist and an economist on decision making in their field. Each develops a normative argument linking theoretical and policy analysis to establish the abilities of the state and individuals to determine housing outcomes. Their responses grow into a dialogue, but they collaborate on the conclusions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
