An innovative and timely guide to housing law that integrates the disciplines of law and public policy so that readers see how the subject fits together – both the letter of the law and the way it is practised. The innovative 3-part structure covers all the topics of a typical Housing Law module and it is written in a clear and conversational style, with a wide range of source material to show how the law is created, interpreted and used in real life. Students are expertly guided through the complexities of housing law by a leading academic who has taught the subject for more than 20 years. Where relevant, chapters end with a section on 'the future' that discusses proposed changes to the law and the impact of those changes. It also discusses the conceptual issues raised by the Human Rights Act.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"This is an excellent text, which adds greatly to Cowan's previous work on housing law in its societal, legal and political contexts. This monograph achieves its aims of providing an accessible socio-legal framework for students and practitioners to understand housing law."
Liam Thornton, Legal StudiesSee more reviews
"… a monumental text which will sit equally well on the bookshelves of law or social/public policy students concerned with housing."
