The Affordable Housing Reader brings together classic works and contemporary writing on the themes and debates that have animated the field of affordable housing policy as well as the challenges in achieving the goals of policy on the ground. The Reader - aimed at professors, students, and researchers - provides an overview of the literature on housing policy and planning that is both comprehensive and interdisciplinary. It is particularly suited for graduate and undergraduate courses on housing policy offered to students of public policy and city planning.,

The Reader is structured around the key debates in affordable housing, ranging from the conflicting motivations for housing policy, through analysis of the causes of and solutions to housing problems, to concerns about gentrification and housing and race. Each debate is contextualized in an introductory essay by the editors, and illustrated with a range of texts and articles. Elizabeth Mueller and Rosie Tighe have brought together for the first time into a single volume the best and most influential writings on housing and its importance for planners and policy-makers.

Review:

"Several critical themes are presented throughout this book, which are central to understanding the  importance of housing as an area of social policy and its particular meaning in the US." - Lonaard, Issue 14, Volume 3, March 2013

"This extensive and excellently compiled reader brings forward some of the key texts to enable a deeper understanding of affordable housing debate and policy." - Graham Squires, University of The West of England, Environment and Planning B

"On the whole, this is a comprehensive and thought-provoking exploration of US housing policy ideas." - Kath Scanlon, London School of Economics, London, UK, International Journal of Housing Policy

"The Affordable Housing Reader brings together many thoughtful contributions addressing a variety of issues in housing and community development. While the readings are intense, the editors’ introduction in each section helps in organizing the debate and in setting up the context for discussion...With its broad coverage and focused discussion, The Affordable Housing Reader is an excellent choice for a housing policy course."Journal of Urban Affairs, Vol. 37/No. 1/2015

 "...housers (i.e., advocates of affordable housing) fi nally have a treasure trove of supplemental readings for graduate classes in housing." Journal of the American Planning Association Spring 2013, Vol. 79, No. 2
