“The book is designed to be easily used by students and teachers. … the book is a goldmine when looking for references and must-reads for students and (starting) housing scholars.” (Jana Verstraete, Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, Vol. 34, 2019)
“The careful crafting of this text presents complex, theorized analyses in accessible and immediately usable ways for students, academics, policy, practitioner and lay people alike, and will be an invaluable resource for all readers interested in deepening their understanding of the profound housing challenges and complexities facing nations world-wide – and seeking a toolset through which to better engage with these. … House, Home and Society is likely to play a significant role in deepening housing scholarship for years to come.” (Wendy Stone, Housing Studies, Vol. 32 (8), 2017)“House, Home and Society provides an important sociological account of housing, the home and their intrinsic connection to one another. The text is particularly useful for students of sociology and other related social sciences disciplines. … this is an excellent detailed, yet succinct, introduction to the key sociological issues around housing.” (Mel Nowicki, International Journal of Housing Policy, Vol. 16 (4), October, 2016)
[T]he authors succeed in giving a broad overview of topics worthwhile exploring (further) for those engaged in the field of housing. As it touches upon so many matters and introduces a variety of theoretical perspectives, the book is a goldmine when looking for references and must-reads for students and (starting) housing scholars. – Jana Verstraete, KU Leuven, Belgium
