Description - Housing Policy in the 1990s by Johnston Birchall

The late 1980s saw a deluge of Conservative legislation designed to restructure post-war housing policy completely, but what has this achieved so far and what are its effects during this decade and into the next century? Are we at a crossroads, able to still make choices, or have we already passed the point of no return? Have profound underlying shifts in housing tenure and the balance of political forces in housing changed so rapidly that there may not be much choice left? The contributors to this book - some academics and some leading practitioners, but all experts in different aspects of the subject - have been challenged to provide some answers to these questions. Housing Policy in the 1990s examines whether the "enabling" local authority has really been "disabled" by central government, whether housing associations can fulfil their new role as leading providers of social renting housing, whether building societies will still be able and willing to finance them, what sort of social and economic consequences the growth in home ownership will have, and whether the private rented sector can be revived. It provides critiques of government policies from the "new right", from a "race and gender" perspective, and from the point of view of council tenants.
