A Right to Housing Foundation for a New Social Agenda

Synopsis

A Right to Housing Foundation for a New Social Agenda by Chester Hartman

Presents a powerful and compelling analysis of the persistent inability of the United States to meet the housing needs of its people

Reviews

This book does an excellent job of taking into account this broader notion of housing, while remaining focused on those in poverty or with disabilities who are in dire need of affordable, safe housing. Particularly commendable is the overview of the various functions of housing....[T]he volume is ideal reading for any advocate, researcher, or student interested in the notion of a right to housing, safe housing, or affordable housing. It is a treasure trove of statistics, policy history, and policy proposals for a more progressive housing model in America. This book is highly recommended!

-Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare A well-written hard-nosed analysis of a range of dimensions of housing in the U.S. Particularly if you have never delved into the housing field before...this book is where you should begin.

-Contemporary Sociology
