In All That is Solid, Danny Dorling offers an agenda-shaping look at the UK's dangerous relationship with housing—and how it's all going to come crashing down

Housing was at the heart of the financial collapse, and our economy is now precariously reliant on the housing market. In this groundbreaking book, Danny Dorling argues that housing is the defining issue of our times. Tracing how we got to our current crisis and how housing has come to reflect class and wealth in Britain, All That Is Solid shows that the solution to our problems—rising homelessness, a generation priced out of home ownership—is not, as is widely assumed, building more homes. Inequality, he argues, is what we really need to overcome.
