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 ground-breaking 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.

'An urgent book about an urgent topic' - Lynsey Hanley, New Statesman

'A brilliantly original study of our national obsession' - Nick Cohen, Observer

Danny Dorling is Halford Mackinder Professor in Geography at the University of Oxford. He has worked both with the British government and the World Health Organization and is frequently asked to comment on current issues on TV and the radio. He has published more than twenty-five books, including Injustice: Why Social Inequality Exists, So You Think You Know About Britain? and The 32 Stops for Penguin Underground Lines.

Review:
5 stars. As Danny Dorling's powerfully argued new book makes clear ... the need for serious action has never been greater (Ed Cumming Telegraph)

Dorling grasps the importance of the issue. His urgency is warranted. The professor is also often correct (John McDermott Financial Times)

The most lucid and urgent account of the UK's housing crisis you'll read this year. It deserves a place at the top of David Cameron's reading list. In fact, one would like to hand-deliver it to every minister... Dorling's anger at our legislators is palpable... his solutions are at once simple and radical (Evening Standard)
