Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is THE book to use for courses on housing policy and programs.The book conveys the strengths and weaknesses of America’s crazy-quilt system of housing development, regulation, finance, and policy. Kudos again to Alex Schwartz for making a complex topic understandable, even enjoyable, without over-simplifying."—Peter Dreier, Politics, Occidental College

"This book could not be more timely. At the height of a global financial meltdown brought on by outrageous predatory mortgage lending practices just a few short years ago, this book shines a bright line on both the long term and short term policies that brought us the most devastating economic crisis since the Great Depression."—Gregory Squires, Sociology, George Washington University

"Housing Policy in the United States was already in a class by itself. Now with its updated statistics and analysis of the recent housing crunch, the second edition becomes a "no-brainer" choice as foundational text for social scientists and planners interested in contemporary housing problems and policy responses."—George Galster, Urban Studies and Planning, Wayne State University
