Review:

"The Place of Home will prove an invaluable foundational text and reference tool, which deservedly should continue to have prominence in published scholarship on this subject...engaging and interesting as well as informative...a great deal of relevant evidence within a lively, cogent and concise narrative is a noteworthy strength of the book overall." – Planning Perspectives
