Now in its fourth edition, this textbook has been completely revised to examine the current state of housing policy in the UK. Exploring developments in housing policy made since Labour's 1997 electoral victory, the book addresses current issues including the 'brownfield versus greenfield' debate; the phasing out of renovation grants; the transfer of local authority housing to registered social landlords; boom, slump and boom in the owner-occupied sector. Other topics addressed range from regional policy and housing across the UK, to social exclusion, community care and homelessness.

'A few distinguished names have written books on housing policy that have remained in print over this twenty year period - Paul Balchin's is one of them....This format and style make for a very lucid structure that , in turn, makes the book accessible to the targeted student reader. the reader will find it easy to navigate a passage through the book to find the themes and issues that interest them.' - Mary Griffiths (University of Central England) - Housing Studies Vol.17 - 6/02
