Abstract

This book aims to provide a wide ranging exploration of the key contemporary relationships between social change and housing. It is both policy oriented and theoretical and draws on a group of internationally respected academics. It is also multidisciplinary incorporating sociology, economics, social policy and human geography perspectives. Its international perspective is rooted in its examination of issues such as economic insecurity and instability, social diversity, financial and social exclusion, sustainability, privatisation and state legitimacy, the interaction of the global and the local across three continents. There is a particular focus on China and SE Asia as major elements of social and economic change as we move into a new century. Housing reforms in China are at the centre of more far reaching economic and social transformations which will resonate globally. Similarly, the pace of urbanisation in SE Asia is rapid and will produce megacities with new challenges for housing and urban policy. The papers for this collection have all been specially commissioned. The overall aim of the book is to provide a benchmark statement of key issues in housing and to emphasise the need to embed our understanding of housing issues in an international and multidisciplinary setting.
