Editorial Reviews

Emily Silverman
[U]nique in bringing together essays from a range of countries, on multiple issues, and from diverse and explicit economic and social perspectives. I have found myself recommending this book to colleagues from economics, public policy and urban planning as a broad yet focused introduction to the state of the art in housing studies research. The SAGE Handbook of Housing Studies is a hugely important contribution to the field of housing studies, and should be in the library of every university, and on the shelves - or desks - of housing scholars everywhere.
Andrejs Skaburskis
The comprehensive volume we have long been waiting for. Chapters by leading scholars from many disciplines offer students, housing professionals and policy analysts an insightful examination of the complex aspects of the housing sector.
Jenny Muir
So, what is a 'handbook of housing studies' actually for? Who will benefit from this book? Housing scholors will want to take a look at chapters in their research areas, but I suggest going beyond this and taking the opportunity to widen horizons. Scholars from other disciplines will benefit enormously from many chapters. And, of course, the handbook is a very valuable resource for students, with many chapters forming a good starting point for further study.

...an admirable consolidation of current knowledge and provides an excellent overview of contemporary housing issues.
