The Encyclopedia of Housing

Edited by:

May 1998 | 736 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This authoritative resource brings into focus the many and important connections among the different disciplines in the field of housing - planning, architecture, social sciences, environmental design, business law and others. The Encyclopedia of Housing assists in the conceptualization of housing problems and outlines methods for studying and resolving them.

While much of the work focuses on the USA, there are also essays on housing in Western Europe and Japan, and on the World Bank and the World Health Organization. Given the inclusion of broad thematic material and subjects of relevance to housing in all industrialized countries, The Encyclopedia of Housing will be a vital resource for researchers, practitioners and students everywhere.
