|Title||Finance for Housing: An Introduction|
|Author Name||Cathy Davis|
This book offers a comprehensive overview of housing policy and finance in the UK, discussed in the context of the Global Financial Crisis and the current Coalition Government. From the outset, the book is underpinned by political debate about the role of the state in housing, the impact of political paradigms and the changing nature of housing in society and as part of the welfare state. In many ways, this book is a vital think piece for all who work in the housing sector. As such, it is an invaluable source for students and housing practitioners as well as for anybody who wants to learn more about how some of the key aspects of the housing system have been influenced by government as well as public and private sector stakeholders. At the end of each chapter, the author encourages the reader to reflect on key issues and think more widely about each topic.
