"A major contribution to housing studies and to the wider welfare state literature"
Journal of Social Policy
"The book furthermore illuminates a number of fundamental issues and trends, and lays bare a whole range of underlying causal mechanisms. As such, it has the potential to inspire a stream of future research."
International Journal of Housing Policy
"A hugely impressive book. Housing transitions through the life course not only offers a valuable comparison of lifetime attitudes towards housing across different countries but also highlights how the global financial crisis has impacted on such markets. Bang up-to-date and highly readable. A much recommended read."
Professor David Bailey, Coventry University Business School, UK
About This Book
The housing we live in shapes individual access to jobs, health, well being and communities. There are also substantial differences between generations regarding the type of housing they aspire to live in, their attitudes to housing costs, the nature of their households and their attitudes to different tenures. This important contribution to the literature draws upon research from the UK, Australia and the USA to show how lifetime attitudes to housing have changed, with new population dynamics driving the market and a greater emphasis on consumption. It also considers how the global financial crisis has differentially affected housing markets across the globe, with variable impacts on the long term housing transitions of different populations.
