9780080471631: International Encyclopedia of Housing and Home, Seven-Volume Set

Adequate housing is universally recognized as the basis for productive social engagement, but constitutes adequate housing. This encyclopedia, edited by distinguished researcher and teacher Susan J. Smith, uses studies in economics and finance, psychology, social policy, sociology, anthropology, geography, architecture, law, and other disciplines to create an international portrait of a house and, ultimately, a home. Summarizing the diverse approaches are 34 overview articles that help readers navigate more complex materials, and beneath them are cross-references and citations that depict their interrelationships. Presenting comprehensive and balanced views of qualitative and quantitative approaches to housing, this multidisciplinary approach reveals the many facets of our efforts to claim some place as our own. This title offers international in scope, engaging with trends in every world region. The editorial board and contributors are drawn from a wide constituency, collating expertise from academics, policy makers, professionals and practitioners, and from every key center for housing research. Every entry stands alone on its merits and is accessed alphabetically, yet each is fully cross-referenced, and attached to one of seven thematic categories whose 'wholes' far exceed the sum of their parts.
