Overview

In this meticulously researched book, Peter Hutchinson traces the trends, developments and policies in the housing market during the last twenty years, and describes the constant struggle to supply adequate accommodation for an ever-increasing British population. Government schemes such as low-cost housing, the right to buy and the London Docklands Development Corporation are examined in detail, Hutchinson drawing upon examples and statistics from other countries to illustrate the successes and failures of the UK's efforts. Official policy is illuminated by comprehensive surveys and individual stories, including the author's own experiences. The relationships of race, transport, environment and employment in Britain's housing problems are also considered, as are the resulting battles against bureaucracy and prejudice.
